"A Maritime Tale of Lake Ontario. In the year 1880 Young Mollie McIntyre, recently widowed and now owner of the family operated cargo schooner Gazelle, fights two battles to keep her business afloat- one with Lake Ontario, the other with the male dominated waterfront of her day. Inspired by Oswego's Dr. Mary Walker, Rochester's Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, and other historic female fighters for women's suffrage and self sovereignty, Mollie keeps her ship going only to confront one of the worst Great Lakes gales of the 19th century."--back cover
