Give a Girl a Knife by Amy Thielen
"I got in from lobster fishing one night and I had a message on my answering machine. Hi Linda, this is Emily Bestler calling from Simon & Schuster. We've read The Perfect Storm and we're really intrigued with this female fisherman thing you have going on. Do you want to write a book? And at the time I thought, that sounds like a lot of work. No, I don't want to write a book. I really like this female fisherman thing I have going on."
– Internationally feared swordboat captain Linda Greenlaw
Different author here, but same mood. Except the lobsters are on the hot line at Bouley, port is a homestead in the remote Minnesota woods, and Amy Thielen takes to writing like a tornado to a plain.
