I am so
tickled to see this review of Leaving Lukens in Seven Seas Cruising
Association's Bulletin -- these folks do what I dream of doing ... on a
daily basis. (They sail daily, and yes, I dream daily of sailing.) :-)
From the September, 2012 issue of the SSCA Bulletin:
Do you love to read great fiction that takes place in locations where
you’re cruising to or that you’ve cruised to before? I know I do and
after living aboard in Oriental and New Bern, NC for several years, I
really enjoyed reading Leaving Lukens, a nautical adventure/love story
that takes place in these locales. This award winning historical novel
is set in 1942 as WWII encroaches on a small North Carolina coastal
Weave in some North Carolina sailing and treasure diving
adventures, a few Nazis, and characters that soon become old friends and
you’ve got yourself a great read. The surprise ending is perfect. This
is just the right book to grab as you’re heading down the ICW this fall.
SSCA Member Laura Wharton is also the author of The Pirate’s Bastard, a
historical fiction adventure set in colonial North Carolina in and
around Wilmington, N.C. Visit her website, http://www.laurawhartonbooks.com.

Thanks to my sailing friends for encouraging me to join this excellent organization. I'm looking forward to taking advantage of some of the many educational opportunities presented this year!
