    She's a young woman who was abandoned on an is land by her father after their ship sank and her mother died.  She's been there for four years and has learned how to take care of herself.  The island has nothing in the way of food, and the men on it view her as a victim.  She's saving her coin to travel back to her father and demand to become part of the crew.  She's dredger and she's found a rich spot for stones that sell well.  If she can stay alive, she's got it made.
    St. Martin's Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 1st.
    Fable has a man after her wanting her coin, so she runs to the boat where the captain buys her stones and asks him for passage.  He says no but the amount of money she mentions tempts him enough to say yes.
    She has many adventures on this boat with West, the Captain.  They are falling in love with each other but can't show it to the crew.  Just like a crew member, Willa, is his sister...  No one knows that either.
    When she finds her father and says she's come to join the crew he says no  But he tells her she can have all the treasure on the Lark, the wrecked boat.That's nice but it's in a dangerous place.  She tells West she will share with her crew mates.  He thinks she should keep a bigger share since it's her inheritance.  She says no, share and share alike.
    Will they make it through the the dangerous waters?  Will the treasure still be there?  Will everyone still be alive?
