THE storms of november
FIFTEEN DEGREES PORT
The difference between safe at harbor in Duluth, and floundering, lost and doomed to the coldest, deepest grave the world’s largest lake has prepared for you.
A determined captain is tasked with shepherding 60,000 long tons of iron ore and a handful of souls across the greatest of the Great Lakes. On shore, families face an uncertain future, layoffs and a changing economy. Shipping on the big lakes is suffering, and tycoons make deals and schemes for ships a thousand feet long as if they were toys in their bathtub, the lives of the crews so much working tonnage.
Meanwhile, the November clouds gather. Captain Marianne Carter keeps her own counsel, charts her course, marshals her crew, and whispers to the lake. An unlikely survivor, the secret she harbors is inextricably linked to the inland sea, the Great Water, Superior. Sail with nimbus and the MV Marie Kearns, but keep the wheelhouse coffee strong. Superior in November comes with heavy seas, dangerous currents, and ideas of its own.
