    E–pub At the Mercy of the Sea: The True Story of Three Sailors in a Caribbean Hurricane I've read books by Mr. Kretschmer before so I already knew he is a fine writer. This book experience was different for me because by getting to know the characters (real people), feeling I knew them, just made reading the end of the book really tough. Any vessel in a hurricane is no joke and Lenny was just such an impossible to tr

The story and characters are so compelling and so beautifully caught in such a terrible mess of a storm that it almost seems like Kretschmer had to make it up, but it's true.

    E–pub At the Mercy of the Sea: The True Story of Three Sailors in a Caribbean Hurricane I don't like reading books, clearly, when the author is trying to make money with a story by filling up pages of description after description of anything else but the story itself. We don't have to know in boring details about everyone's life.
