A South Seas Sailing Adventure

by Dan Feltham

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
A grieving widower decides to take his 18-year old twin daughters and other family members on a sailboat cruise to the South Pacific. They visit the Marquesas Islands and then on the way to Tahiti, are suddenly hit by a mysterious storm. The merging of a rumored Mayan doomsday prediction, a unique date, time and set of mid ocean coordinates all result in a time warp back 200 years. They reach O'Taheiti in the year 1812 and are welcomed and entranced by the local islanders. They are individually torn between remaining with new friends on the island or attempting the unknowns of a return to present time. Love affairs and black pearls complicate matters. The story is a combination of sailing, time travel, history, fantasy, and South Seas romance. Come aboard and enjoy the trip. You may want to share their adventure, if only in the reading.
Description
Book's Genesis In my lifetime, I have not traveled as extensively as I would have liked, but I have traveled perhaps more than my fair share. Whenever someone has asked, "What's the most beautiful place you have ever been?" I have always answered, "Tahiti, and specifically the magic island of Bora Bora." I have also had more than my fair share of mistresses – inanimate floating objects made of fiberglass, wood, cloth and aluminum – all sailboats with names like Heather, Premier, Patriot, Makani Kai, Williwaw, Goblin, Spindrift, and Cherish. They were all ladies of one personality or another to which I devoted far too much time and money in payment for personal satisfaction. It would figure then that a sailing venue would form the basis for another book. In late 2012 there was a great deal of speculation about the Mayan doomsday predictions – the world would end according to the Mayan calendar, or there would be great floods or other worldwide cataclysmic disasters. It made good news; it also made a good background for a time tested travel plot. The well known movies Brigadoon and Somewhere in Time and classic novels such as Lost Horizons and Gulliver's Travels have all captured the imaginations of adventurers and dreamers. I am both. Out of these three topics came the reality, fantasy and hopefully your reading enjoyment for The Edge of Time, a story soaked in tropical ocean waters, trade winds, and romance.
