The haunting story of Jamie Eugley, a young lobsterman struggling with the grinding responsibilities of a head-injured fiancee and mounting trap wars, The Ghost Trap is a modern tale with an old-fashioned hero who puts family and heritage before self. In the end it's not just about lobstering, but about one man's sorrow for not appreciating the love he had, however damaged. Written with sensitivity and rich description, this is a piercingly accurate depiction of life in a small Maine lobstering community.
