Nicolas Graves raised his sons to be lobstermen. Bill and Joshua (known as Jonah) Graves grew up aboard their father’s boat—the Cinderella—learning the rules and rites of the antiquated business they love. But when their father is lost at sea and the price of lobster crashes worldwide, Bill and Jonah must decide how much they are willing to risk for their family legacy.

Standing against them is Osmond Raymond— the town minister, mystic, captain of The Revelation, and their father’s business partner for more than twenty years. Together with his grandson and heir, Tonto, Osmond is determined to push the Graves family out of their lobster pound, regardless of the cost or the consequences.

This was a new world for me. The life of a lobsterman and the rugged environment where they live and work was a completely foreign concept. Jon Keller brought that world to existence for me. I was immediately pulled into their life and struggles.

The relationship between Bill and Jonah hasn’t been the same since their father was lost at sea. They fight and struggle like any other pair of brothers. They question many things about each other, including their relationships with their father and others. But once confronted with a common enemy, they band together like only siblings can.

This book was gripping and deep; descriptive in a world that felt grey. The story flowed well and the writing was tight. The characters were not just real they came off the pages. It perfectly demonstrates the strength of family in spite of internal issues. Bill and Jonah are strong characters and regardless of how formidable Osmond Raymond presents himself.

This is a fabulous story that I didn’t want to put down!

I give Of Sea and Cloud 4 solid stars and would pair it with a full Cabernet Sauvignon.
