Linda Greenlaw

Lifesaving Lessons

Notes from an Accidental Mother

Viking, March 2013

LIFESAVING LESSONS follows America’s only female swordfish boat captain, Linda Greenlaw — crosser of oceans, catcher of huge swordfish — as she faces her greatest battle with nature yet. This time though, it’s not the ocean with which she must struggle, but her newly adopted teenaged daughter.

“Greenlaw’s memoir deftly chronicles her journey to motherhood, without whitewashing away the toughness of the trek or the joy she experiences along the way.”
