For anyone who's ever thought the chance for love has passed, comes this sea-swept tale of an unlikely romance springing at an unlikely moment. A fisherman from Ireland's western islands has a poet's touch but simple tastes, and a soul as deep as the ocean--which is his home, his religion, and his prison. A Welsh woman has left her native farm for the hustle-bustle of Liverpool and a career in publishing. Neither expected to find love later in life. But once the power of the written word brings them together, they are ready to try.
