Albert's Destiny, by Birdie Etchison, is a coastal historical romance with a fresh, new topic. The seining industry provides an interesting backdrop to the story with just the right amount of research and information for this novella. I especially liked the story thread about the two orphans. Even though the reader may be able to predict how the story turns out, the fun and entertainment is in the getting there.
Loved this story!
