Peter Bois is a billionaire and a summer resident of the exclusive island of Nantucket. He is also a man who is used to doing what he wants regardless of the consequences.
But that all changes during a day at the beach with his estranged family. Sucked under by a riptide, the arrogant and condescending businessman is thrust back nearly two hundred years, landing on the deck of a Nantucket whaleship.
Proof that fate can have a sense of humor.
The world he knew was gone: his thriving company, his demanding wife, his beloved Nantucket family home, his jet, his privileged life. All are far in the future and out of his grasp.
Catapulted into the dangerous and demanding world of 19th-century whaling, Peter is no longer a one-percenter but a greenhand, clueless to life aboard and ignorant to what is expected of him. Struggling to survive the brutal conditions of a whaleship, he must confront his new reality and come to grips with life nearly two centuries in the past as the ship pursues whales and battles storms thousands of miles out to sea. His goal? Survive long enough to figure out how to get back to his own time and back to where he can reunite with his family and right his many wrongs.
In this engaging and innovative debut novel, Garth Jeffries delivers a thrilling, fast-paced adventure that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
