From James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief of the Midwest Book Review:
“…The Fisherman’s Son is an original novel by Marilyn Peake about Wiley O’Mara, a twelve-year-old boy, living on an island up north during the beginning of the nineteenth century. Wiley befriends a dolphin and undertakes an incredible rescue mission, as well as a memorable journey through the wonders of the North Atlantic Ocean. The Fisherman’s Son is a delightful and colorfully narrated tale which documents Marilyn Peake as a story teller of considerable narrative skill.”
