Abraham's Bay & Other Stories
The restless characters in Abraham’s Bay & Other Stories have set sail for islands in the Atlantic and Caribbean. Some seek adventure and are in love with roaming, others are running from their past. Inevitably, these small boat sailors haul their personal histories along, their hubris, their failures, their frustrations. They anchor in faraway coves, make night passages across reef-strewn waters, contend with storms and with themselves. The characters of these eleven stories often seem to exist at the edges of the larger world. "Grab a hot toddy and prepare for the ride." — Cruising World magazine
