At sixteen, Mack Carter lived life on the edge in the projects of Seattle, Washington. Abandoned by his father at a young age, he returns home to find his mother has also left, taking all their possessions with her. In order to survive he must grow up even quicker than he thought and sets off for Dutch Harbor, Alaska and the lure of an adventurous life.
He meets Nels Pearson, ten years his senior, and is given the chance to prove himself on the Bering Sea. They begin a friendship that will give roots to the younger man and salvation to the elder.
Faith Pearson has known and suffered horrific losses in her lifetime. Being a woman on a crab boat, in the middle of the Bering Sea, she’s considered bad luck, and must overcome great obstacles to prove herself both physically and emotionally. Effectively building walls and rules to block out emotional ties and distractions, she lives a lonely life until she comes to the Bering Sea and meets a man that changes her perspective on life. Can she let go of her tragic past and step into the possibly of the greatest catch she may ever know?
One man will bring them together but not in the way you might think...
The Catch is set in frigid Dutch Harbor, Alaska, the Bering Sea, as well as majestic Seattle, Washington. It’s a story of unique relationships and about letting go of the past, for the possibility of an even better future. The Catch, will catapult you into a world few people will ever know.
The Catch is the first book I’ve ever written, just to see if I could. I’m in the process of re-writing it now. Why you ask? Because I didn’t know much about writing when I published it. I had a story in my mind and wanted to try and put it to paper. I love this adventure so much and want to do it justice, so look for the new version to come out hopefully in the fall of 2020.
