Goodreads: When Meg Whitaker’s father decides to sell the family’s lobster-fishing business to her high school nemesis, she sets out to prove she should inherit it instead. Though she’s never had any interest in running the small fleet–or even getting on a boat due to her persistent seasickness–she can’t stand to see Oliver Ross take over. Not when he ruined her dreams for a science scholarship and an Ivy League education ten years ago.
Oliver isn’t proud of what he did back then. Angry and broken by his father walking out on his family, he lashed out at Meg–an innocent bystander. But owning a respected fishing fleet on Prince Edward Island is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s not about to walk away just because Meg wants him to.
Meg’s father has the perfect solution: Oliver and Meg must work the business together, and at the end of the season, he’ll decide who gets it. Along the way, they may discover that their stories are more similar than they thought . . . and their dreams aren’t what they expected.
Bestselling author Liz Johnson invites you back to Prince Edward Island for a brand-new series about family, forgiveness, and the kind of love that heals all wounds.
Ope’s Opinion: This is my first Liz Johnson book and now I will be reading her back list until she writes her next one! This is a great example of how Christian Fiction should be written – there are amazing characters ( who are flawed ), a beautiful setting ( Prince Edwards Island ), and good examples of what Christians are really like ( not perfect, but seeking God – Not preachy at all ).
Although this book is centered around Lobster fishing – the fishing was woven into the story of the relationships. Those relationships should be treasured and forgiveness are both at the center of this story.
This is the first in the series and I am really excited about going back to Prince Edwards Island to read Eli’s story and peek into Meg and Olivers lives again.
Going on my wish list!
