Read an Excerpt

"'Oh big deal. Twelve hours? Try that routine for three days. Your boat is like the Queen Elizabeth compared to what I used to put to sea in. You've been spoiled. Why, I remember a time when...' And in the truest one-upmanship fashion, my friend painted a picture that made my horror story look like a kid's cartoon. I could feel the ladies who were playing bridge stop their game and perch on the edge of their chairs behind me. The Island Boys had spun around on their bar stools and were leaning toward our table. The suit-and-ties ordered more coffee, and the islanders knew there would be later ferries toward home. Everyone loves a sea story. No one tells one quite like Alden."
