The Gods of Second Chances is the story of a man overwhelmed by things beyond his control--a granddaughter on the verge of adolescence, a daughter returning from prison rehab, a frivolous lawsuit, and falling for the one woman he can't have--all the while trying to fish his living out of a fickle ocean in the mercurial weather of Southeast Alaska. It's no wonder one god isn't enough for him--Leigh Anne Kranz
