Overview

DO YOU BELIEVE IN EVERLASTING LOVE?


Jay Danforth Fitzgerald, known as “Fitz” to his few remaining friends, has learned from long and painful experience that there is no such thing as love that lasts. A failed an aging stockbroker full of angst and self-loathing, he fritters away his nights in Tiddly’s Bar and his days aboard a derelict sailboat stuck in the mud of Charleston Harbor. But when he meets a much younger woman named Gemma, his world changes forever.


Award-winning author Michael Hurley has crafted a tale for the ages about the love we leave behind and the longing that fills our hearts for what might have been. When Fitz resolves to make a reckless solo passage to Ireland in a last-ditch grab for salvation, Gemma secretly stows aboard. The story of Gemma and Fitz plays out on the dramatic stage of the North Atlantic, on a boat bound toward the past Fitz cannot forget and a future he cannot imagine.
