The Kings family has lived on Loosewood Island for three hundred years, blessed with the bounty of the sea. But for the Kings, this blessing comes with a curse: the loss of every firstborn son. Now, Woody Kings, the leader of the island{u2019}s lobster fishing community and the family patriarch, teeters on the throne, and Cordelia, the oldest of Woody{u2019}s three daughters, stands to inherit the crown. To do so, however, she must defend her island from meth dealers from the mainland while navigating sibling rivalry and the vulnerable nature of her own heart when she falls in love with her sternman. Inspired by King Lear, The Lobster Kings is the story of Cordelia{u2019}s struggle to maintain her island{u2019}s way of life in the face of danger from offshore and the rich, looming, mythical legacy of her family{u2019}s namesake.
