Book Description
In the nineteenth century, hundreds of young girls joined schooner and land based fishing crews in the great seasonal Labrador cod fishery. Uneducated and socially repressed, many of these young women found themselves alone and frightened on distant shores, with no familial or spiritual support.

In 1982, Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a young British doctor, answered the call from Britain's oldest North American colony to treat the appalling social conditions among the livyers of Labrador, and the Newfoundlanders who prosecuted the Labrador cod fishery. During that first season, Grenfell's medical ship the Albert was blown into Indian, where he encountered a young woman in great distress, under the care of a well-intentioned but misguided fishing captain.
