Clare has fallen in love with an impossible boy. Nobody, not even her best friend Cait understands why she is spending more and more time out on the island with the strange young man. They don't realise that the wild rocky shores of Carrig na Ron, with its seal beach and fisherman's cottage is the place Clare belongs. Her mother is away in Dublin and her father, obsessed with studying the migration of herring, is lost in thought, in his observatory, most of the time. But Ronan is always there, waiting on the quayside for her. As her obsession with him grows, her dreams become haunted by images of Ronan and herself living with the seals and swimming under the sea to kelp forests. But sometimes it seems as though she is drowning, and she wakes full of dread. A gannet colony is establishing itself on the island. A team of marine biologists comes to live in the nearby town of Carran to study the impressive seabirds. Clare is invited to help them on the project. She is keen to accept, as they are lively and fun to be with. It also gives her a perfect reason to go out to see Ronan. But the closer she gets to her mysterious man the more aloof he becomes. He vanishes for periods of time until one day he disappears completely. This is a story of first love and powerful sexual attraction. Clare is overwhelmed by the intensity of her feelings whilst trying to concentrate on her exams and decide which University she might go to. Her mother and father want different things for her but she is in danger of not caring at all about her future. All she wants is Ronan. The Connemara coast of Ireland with its dramatic shoreline forms the backdrop to this novel. The passion of the young lovers is matched by a passion for the landscape. The story unfolds as the seasons change and the weather becomes wilder. While the human stories are illustrated with nature writing, the lives of the local fishermen and farmers are woven through the stories of Clare and her friends. In the end they all come to her aid when it appears as though Ronan has abandoned her altogether. His father tells her that Ronan is a troubled soul whose mother drowned at sea. This book will appeal to young people who are interested in nature and who prefer a literary novel. Natural history elements have been thoroughly researched and the life cycle of the gannet is used as a metaphor for Clare's transition from child into adult. A male gannet creates a nest that he hopes will entice a female to join him and become his partner for life. The gannet's lives at sea are perilous and it's only the strength of their bond that enables them to survive and care for their young. As the gannets wait for their mates to come home Clare never gives up on trusting that one day Ronan will be hers forever.

"We were like the jellyfish she mused. They surrounded the boat, all pink and filmy, like upturned translucent pudding bowls, each pulsing slowly. Incapable of strong directional swimming they were at the mercy of greater forces, of powerful sea currents that swept them out of the Caribbean and carried them here. Ilse too had been pulsing away in her own home town; then Erik had happened. Emotions had brought her here. But things were cooling between them. Perhaps his novelty was wearing off; she had read of that happening. Or maybe it was her. Was she changing? She had put on a little weight. It was very intense, being constantly together on the boat. It was also new, this closeness with only one human all of the time"

The devastation of many of the greatest North Atlantic cod stocks, particularly those of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Grand Banks, has become an icon for the unsustainable relation between human exploitation and Nature. Here, George Rose tells the full story of that devastation, in scientific detail, for the first time - from the formation of the North Atlantic marine ecosystems to the massive stock declines in the last half of the 20th century. Politics and the fisheries are inextricably entwined. In Cod, Rose recounts the many political influences on the fisheries over several centuries and describes how neglect from the late 1800s onward led to insufficient scientific knowledge and little protection for the stocks when massive Euro-Russian fleets targeted the Grand Banks after World War II, destroying the most prolific fishery the world has known. Cod is no armchair account, but a controversial one that includes original information on the North Atlantic fisheries.
