The Out Vigil by Julie McIsaac

Mere hours before the opening of the perilous king crab fishing season, a young Newfoundlander arrives in Alaska, desperate for a job. A local fisherman grudgingly agrees to help him out, but past and present collide when a young woman shows up. A modern fable steeped in maritime lore, The Out Vigil questions our ability to accept the natural world for all that it is, both beautiful and terrifying.
