In the dead of night on July 24, 2013, John Aldridge was thrown off the back of the Anna Mary while his fishing partner, Anthony Sosinski, slept below. As desperate hours ticked by, Sosinski, the families, the local fishing community, and the US Coast Guard in three states mobilized in an unprecedented search effort that culminated in a rare and exhilarating success.
A tale of survival, perseverance, and community, A Speck in the Sea tells of one man's struggle to survive as friends and strangers work separately and together to bring him home. Aldridge's wrenching first-person account intertwines with the narrative of the massive, constantly evolving rescue operation designed to save him.

A great story with an even greater ending.
Excellent weaving of many stories
Many people were touched by this event. The story weaves in their perspective giving you a chance to connect with these people and their experience. This messes with the timeline, as you have to go back in time to pick up where they began to be touched. Nonetheless it works well and deepens your connection to the loved ones while learning their story of "what happened."
