Speak to the Winds

Chin Island had been a wild three miles of rock and forest when it was first settled. Now 75 years later, the families who lived there were a proud jumble of Scots, Italians, Portuguese and Greeks, chiefly fishermen and farmers. It was Christmas time when the feud began. Elbridge Gilman, who had unwittingly helped to start it, was a calm, kindly man with a deep love for the island and a deeper love for his wife and children. He did what he could to stop the feud from spreading. So, at first, did Liseo MacGimsey, his quick tempered partner in the fish warf. But there were others like Stell,  who fanned the flame until it threatened to engulf the entire island.
