This is a vivid realistic novel on the razor's edge between human courage and nature's wrath. This story takes place in the frigid South Atlantic. Open the cover and you will be drawn in. I loved this book. I have read it now 3 times and each time it is powerful. If you enjoy stories about struggle to cope with nature and the ocean you also will enjoy this read.
