Me and the Foreign Girl
Caught in an Atlantic storm the ‘Annie L.’ is sinking. With its motley crew the trawler is an accident waiting to happen. They are hundreds of miles from their homeport on the picturesque Achill Island on the west coast of Ireland and there may be no chance of rescue.
The crew; the Skipper, his sensible nephew Pat and deck hand Coleman seem to have a death wish. Life had failed each of them in its own way. The exception is the beautiful red haired marine biologist from Finland who is with them for this one trip. She wants to live.
With an impending storm, they are the only boat to leave the remote Achill Island on the west coast of Ireland. Their position in the north Atlantic is near the porcupine shelf, about one hundred miles from their home port. The engine has blown and the trawler is holed and taking in water. This is the account of the three-man crew and female passenger of the trawler ‘Annie L.’ in a raging Atlantic rainstorm. Their story needs to be told.
Author James McCarthy brings this voyage to life with a cast of unforgettable characters in a rousing sea-faring tale of courage and determination, love and loss, fear and faith.
