The mother of four boys and a young daughter, Bailey lives a contented life with her husband Ty. So it comes as a shock when Ty announces he’s quitting his well-paid desk job, buying a boat, and joining a fleet of long-distance Californian troll fishermen.

The boys think it’s the greatest idea their dad’s ever had. Jenny, the toddler, is traumatized by the move. And Bailey? After desperately trying to talk Ty out of the decision, she finds herself forced to adapt to the life of a fisherman’s wife, watching the waves and hoping the ocean delivers Ty safely home.

Secretly, she hopes he’ll abandon this foolish scheme in a few months.

But Bailey’s underestimated Ty’s determination. Comforted and supported by the seasoned spouses she meets, she finds herself helping Ty cope with a rapidly changing industry facing both business and political challenges, as well as the ever-present threats of the Pacific.

So far, Bailey’s resisted the urge to follow her husband out onto the waves. But to truly understand Ty, she’s going to have to face the ocean with him—fishing by his side.

She’s just not sure she’s up to the task.

About the Author:

M. J. Munro is a fourth-generation San Luis Obispo County native. She lives on California’s Central Coast, next to the sea and within eyeshot of land her great-grandparents cleared.

Munro has worked as a reporter and writer for a local weekly newspaper. In addition to Porpoise in Quicksilver, she has published the novel O’Halloran Land and the short story collection Tracks on the Big Sur. Both books are fictional accounts inspired by the stories of old-timers in the area surrounding San Simeon, Cambria, and Big Sur.

Porpoise in Quicksilver is loosely based on personal experience. When their lives in agriculture became problematic, Munro and her husband turned to commercial fishing.
