For the last thirty-three years, my husband has been a commercial fisherman. Having a troller gave us opportunities to see British Columbia’s beautiful coast in a way most people never can. When it wasn’t fishing time, we often used the boat to do camping trips. In and out of inlets and bays along the coast and among the islands, we had floating holidays.
Over the years we met many fascinating and unique personalities among the fishermen and other boaters. I wanted to use some of these rich experiences as a basis for a novel. None of the characters in my novel are real, but some of them have combinations of mannerisms I saw in people I met. Other than that, my imagination ran wild.
I need a naive woman to be my protagonist. Andrea fits the bill perfectly. She comes to B.C. to find adventure and love. She finds more than enough of both. From Comox on Vancouver Island, to Lund across the water on the B.C. mainland, and then up the coast to Prince Rupert and the Queen Charlotte Islands, Andrea gains a first-hand, in-depth look into the life of a commercial fisherman, all the while dealing with her personal relationships with the two handsome men in her life. And then there’s Monique.
Andrea eventually finds herself in a situation where she fears for her life. She is no longer the naive girl from Ontario, but will her recently acquired survival skills be enough to save her life? Read The Wind Weeps and find out.
