"The Lifeboat is a richly rewarding novel, psychologically
acute and morally complex. It can and should be read on many
levels, but it is first and foremost a harrowing tale of survival.
And what an irresistible tale it is; terrifying, intense, and, like
the ocean in which the shipwrecked characters are cast adrift,
profound."-Valerie Martin, author of Property
and The Confessions of Edward Day
