About a group of French fishermen who leave Brittany to fish in the rough but bountiful waters off the coast of Iceland, this book is as much about the struggles they face in the violent weather of the North Atlantic as it is about the heartbreak faced by those left behind. Full of vivid descriptions of life both at sea and on land, the range of emotions felt by these men of the sea has never been better captured.

I picked up a very old version of this book for a dollar. (It didn't have a book cover, just plain blue, which is why I didn't rate the cover.) I didn't really know what to expect, so it was a pleasant surprise. The writing was easy to get lost in, even if the plot was, in retrospect, rather simplistic. I liked the characters. But don't expect a happy ending!
