Publisher's Summary

Motherless and destitute, Frieda Hope grows up during Prohibition determined to make a better life for herself and her sister, Bea. The girls are taken in by a kindly fisherman named Silver, and Frieda begins to feel at home whenever she is on the water. When Silver sells his fishing boat to WWI veteran Sam Hicks, thinking Sam would be a fine husband for Frieda, she's outraged. But Frieda manages to talk Sam into teaching her to repair boat engines instead, so she has a trade of her own and won't have to marry.

Frieda quickly discovers that a mechanic's wages won't support Bea and Silver, so she joins a team of rumrunners, speeding into dangerous waters to transport illegal liquor. Frieda becomes swept up in the lucrative, risky work - and swept off her feet by a handsome Ivy Leaguer who's in it just for fun.

As danger mounts and her own feelings threaten to drown her, can Frieda find her way back to solid ground - and to a love that will sustain her?

    "good"

    this was a very good book about what happened in the days liquor wasn't legal. a lot of people got caught up in the money. but also how you take care of your own.

    Story
    "Just Another Romance Novel"

    Adequate writing. Great Setting. Interesting characters. I just wish the author would have done more with the plot. Unrequited love just isn't enough to fully captivate me.

    "although the narrator has improved"

    she is still very difficult to listen to.. the first 2 chapters were great....then she went back to her Oh! my! god! the! world! is! ending! for every single sentence. I have no clue if the story is good.

    "Dreams with consequences"

    Prohibition created lots of dangerous people and jobs. This story is about growing up, love, risk, and lessons learned.
