“The Terrible Loyalty” is her first book.
“’The Terrible Loyalty’ is the true story of two men, already life-long friends, who ventured into the heart of the endless ocean at its loneliest point in a 20-foot sailboat. Embarking on a trip across the Pacific Ocean from southern California, to Hilo, Hawaii, they navigated by means only of a sextant and the stars. It was meant to be their Great Adventure. The men had planned for an uneventful sail, but encountered an El Nino storm that threatened their lives, threw them unmercifully off course, and sealed their fates as they battled to survive. Readers will come to know these two extraordinary men and their amazing journey–not only on the sea, but beyond–as their friendship developed and strengthened through the years, then agonize with them in their most powerful test. Other sailors have crossed the ocean’s expanse, but few with such primitive tools, such a small boat, and with the depth of friendship and determination as these two friends.”
The book is available in paperback at Amazon.com; www.mossycovepublications.com, or locally at Peregrine Book Company or Hastings. It is also available in hardcover edition from lulu.com or at barnesandnoble.com.
