It was a short novel (American, I think) about a woman who leaves her husband and moves near the sea. She starts a new life and works in a fish processing plant. I think she starts to write as well. May well be based on a true story.

Sounds a bit Anne Tyler-ish?

I was thinking Anne Tyler too, think it maybe Ladder of Years.

or Annie Proulx? Sounds sort of like The Shipping News?

Thanks, Jadi. Not her though, but I know what you mean. And a pretty short book.

This sounds a lot like "A Year By The Sea" by Joan Anderson although that's non-fiction and it was a fish shop as opposed to a processing plant that she worked at.

Abby, thanks so much for that. I believe you're right. I've passed the details on and that seems to fit the bill. Case closed!
