The men and women on board found themselves on a wave of disaster that drew them into love and betrayal, ports and mayhem, death and heartbreak, and a hurricane called Thomas. Somehow in this was the discovery of the human spirit and desire for survival.
But above all else it is about the sea that deludes and fascinates, that continues to call and beckon us but always waits for that one fatal mistake.
This is a novel, but it is about the real sea and not the illusions. About the real men and women who sail the ships, those who return home, and those who do not.
