In Gravesend Light, award-winning author David Payne masterfully combines moving drama, a high-seas adventure, and a deeply affecting love story. It is the story of Joe Madden, an anthropologist who has returned to his family's summer home on North Carolina's Outer Banks. Little Roanoke, with its traditions dating back to the time of Sir Walter Raleigh, is an isolated enclave threatened by the encroachment of modern civilization -- and the subject of Joe's study. Here, he meets two people who will alter the course of his future: Ray Barstow, a fisherman and ex-con who, aboard the Father's Price, teaches him more than just the ropes of one of the world's most dangerous professions; and Day Shaughnessey, a Yale-educated Ob-Gyn and ardent feminist whose views on reproductive rights come into conflict with the deeply religious people of Little Roanoke. The events of the story culminate in a savage storm at sea that the crew of the Father's Price -- including Joe Madden -- may not survive.… (mer)

This book was very slow for me to get into but once I did, around Part V or VI, I was hooked! it tells the story of Joe and Day, two people drawn together by fate along the Outer Banks of NC. Joe is an ethnologist and Day is a physician, especially for women. She also performs abortions. As their lives become entwined, various things happen that curiously mirror the things that happened to Joe's father and mother. After a disagreement with Day, Joe and his shipmates head out on a fishing trip but are drawn into a rescue attempt on another boat and a bad storm is bearing down on them. What will happen? It becomes a page turner towards the end if you can stick it out that long. ( )

Payne's sequel to "Ruin Creek." He uses a very timely issue of pro-choice as a main topic, presenting the differences & similarities of pro-, to the past and present day. The reader then sees his conflict when presented with impending fatherhood. All becomes a little lost with the in depth fishing expeditions. Payne's known for writing well from a woman's perspective, and he did so in this book (and "Ruin Creek" as well). ( )
