Publisher's Summary

In early May of 2005, Captain Tom Tighe and first mate, Loch Reidy, of the sailboat Almeisan welcomed three new crew members, two men and a woman, for a five-day voyage from Connecticut to Bermuda. While Tighe and Reidy had made the journey countless times, the rest of the crew were paying passengers learning about offshore sailing—and looking for adventure. Four days into their voyage, they got adventure but nothing that they had expected or had any training to handle.
A massive storm struck, sweeping Tighe and Reidy from the boat. The remaining crew members somehow managed to stay aboard the vessel as it was torn apart by wind and water. Overboard! follows the simultaneous desperate struggles of boat passengers and the captain and first mate fighting for their lives in the sea.

Critic Reviews

“I was frightened or astonished by every page of this beautifully told story of raging elements and human survival. And then the tale is ultimately and heartrendingly inspirational. You will not be able to put this book down.” (Dodge Moran, first American to sail solo, nonstop, around the globe)

Nothing like this has ever happened to me...

THANK GOD! Remember the anticipation, the dread of "Jaws"? Well, to me, this was even more intense, AND non-stop!

I found myself pacing when I was in my office, and when I tried listening in bed, I couldn't relax enough to sleep (don't try it).

Suspenseful? Oh...I'd say so. It felt like a 6-hour roller coaster ride!

This novel has set a new standard by which I can judge "Uplifting"

Succinctly stated "This novel had it all." Character development, pacing, amount of detail needed to visualize what was going on, the storyline. From beginning, middle, to an ending that brought tears to my eyes and was the epitome of uplifting, I thoroughly enjoyed this masterful work of nonfiction.
