In Hard Aground, Hall tells the story of a small fishing town caught in the throes of a fishing industry downturn. With few jobs and a population that is rapidly aging, the town is struggling to stay afloat. When the local fishing company goes bankrupt, the town is plunged into a deep recession.

The town's only hope for salvation is the arrival of a new fishing boat, but the company that is supposed to provide the boat can't seem to get its act together. With the town's economy in shambles and the fishing industry in decline, the residents of Hard Aground must hustle to find ways to keep their town afloat.

Hall's novel is a compelling look at the effects of economic downturn on a small town and its residents. It is an exciting read that will leave readers wondering what will happen next.; 8vo; FSA; Signed by Author.
