Lucky Lunt is an endangered species: a third generation lobsterman who works the same Maine waters as his ancestors. But his world is changing too fast for him. His wife has begun selling sea-glass sculptures to tourists, his daughter is college bound and his son has turned angry and lawless. Lucky's own heart is failing him, too, so much that he must hire a deckhand named Ronette, the not-quite-divorced wife of the local lobster wholesaler. In short order Lucky is in a lobster war and has kicked over all the rules: family, health, finance, even the rules of the sea. As waves of trouble turn into a flood tide, Lucky enters an epic confrontation with his enemies and a rogue whale -- a battle his unreliable heart may not survive. Full of pathos and comedy, "The Wooden Nickel" is a classic story, told in a powerful, distinct voice, of a man raging against a changing world, full of pathos and comedy.
