Overview

When a peculiar young woman shows up at the Wesley House Bed and Breakfast with a battered suitcase and stories to tell, shipwright Sam Wesley isn't sure if she's incredibly imaginative or just plain delusional. He soon realizes that Marlena is like no other woman he has ever met. Her strange behavior and far-fetched tales of shipwrecks and survival are a breath of fresh air in Sam's stagnant life.

Sam isn't the only one enchanted by Marlena. With his best friend putting the moves on her and a man from her past coming back into her life, the competition for Marlena's heart is fierce. In the midst of it all, a misunderstanding sends Marlena running, and by the time Sam learns what his heart really wants, it may be too late to win her back.

Editorial Reviews:

“Uncharted tells a story within a story. Readers will be forced to skate along the edge of suspended belief, eagerly turning the pages, hoping it all turns out to be true. A great read that will appeal to armchair sailors, romantics, and real adventurers.” ~Carol Newman Cronin, author of Cape Cod Surprise

I just love a story within a story, especially when it weaves the 'what-if' question throughout the storyline. In Uncharted, imagination takes a wild ride from the ordinary, everyday pace to the unbelievable, from a believable setting to a place where intense struggle just to survive is the ordinary. I loved leaping from the Maine boatyard setting to a tropical island! When the life journeys of two very different people cross paths--when ordinary collides with extraordinary--'what if' becomes very believable. In Uncharted, Chicoine sets an emotional roller coaster in motion, challenging your reality as you travel through time to unravel the mysterious character Marlena through the eyes of the very average, mainstream Samuel. This is a story with depth that will leave you wanting more--you will either love or hate the ending, but you won't be disappointed.

This is a great summer beach read that has a fun and intricate story-within-a-story.

A fast read but a very murky and dis-jointed storyline. There is too much going on and very little time for the development of the characters or a main plot. Ultimately unsatisfactory.
