ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Normandie Fischer had the best of several worlds: a Southern heritage, access to schooling in the DC area (which meant lots of cultural adventures), and several years of sculpture studies in Italy. It might have been better for her if she’d used all these opportunities more wisely, but it’s possible that the imperfect and the unwise also add fodder for the artist and the writer.
Her life changed radically when she married the love of her life at an age when some would have said she was over the hill and way past her prime. (Clichés often speak the truth, don’t they?) A lifelong sailor, she was delighted to find that Michael also longed to cruise lovely waters, which is what they did from Northern CA to Mexico, spending too-few years in the incomparable Sea of Cortez. Sea Venture, their 50′ ketch, is back home in North Carolina now because Normandie’s mama needed care. Still, it’s gorgeous there, too, and she can write from home as easily as she could on the boat.

My Review of Shoal Waters
This book was interesting. At first, I was not sure if I was going to enjoy it. It was a little bit slowww and I am used to a little faster pacing in the stories I read. But I did like Normandie Fischer’s attention to detail with her characters.
However, about halfway through I was enchanted by the way Normandie Fischer displayed some of her characters qualities. She dealt with some very heavy subjects, and she treated them with the importance and relevance they so desperately need.
This book does not wrap up in a tidy bow (which I genuinely appreciated), but it is very realistic, and it left me wanting to learn more about the characters mentioned in the story (side characters which I believe have their own books, so yay me for more books to read!).
Overall, this was as I said a remarkably interesting story with great attention to detail, biblical truths, and a uniquely compelling narrative. 4 out of 5 stars.
