On an exceptionally cold and windy night in Ottawa, an abnormally large, healthy baby is dramatically born to a woman whose origins and circumstances are unknown. Entering life with special physical gifts, he goes on his journey, giving and receiving love. Along the way he touches many with his character and belief in doing what he feels is right, while making his surroundings a better place in which to live.

Meet Jack Sabre, a golden boy with a huge physique and a big heart with sound values. He is torn between the love of his golden girl, Nancy, and his best friend, Tommy, as they try to prevent him from making a decision which will alter the life of many. They, along with Jack's adoptive mother, Rita, fear that his actions might have fatal consequences for Jack as he is lured into the coming danger.

Come along with Jack as he makes his way through life; join him as he discovers true love, seeks out truths, anguishes over the unexplained departure of a trusted teacher and the loss of a close friend. As he journeys, he will touch many lives! Be prepared to laugh at his antics but also to fear for him, as his mother does, as he decides to tread where he should not.

Gilbert Latreille is an Ottawa lad who maintains himself in a high state of physical readiness. He works as an HR manager in the Public Service of Canada. At a very early age, he developed an instinct for storytelling as well becoming a keen observer of hum...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it I read both Jack Sabre and The crossing. Very interesting read, indeed. It is truly amazing how the author was able to capture the emotions of young men on board of the ship , watching their comrades parish in the sea. Had me in goose bumps. I can't wait for the 3rd book to find out what lays ahead of Jack Sabre's. I feel the story with Nancy will resurface. There's suspense there. C'mon Mr.Latreille , we are waiting for the story to unfold!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a story! This author had me engaged and imagining myself right there living Jack Sabre`s adventure. The devil's hole passage was exceptional and any angler can relate to it both from a sense of fear and respect for every big one that has gotten away. The main characters' relationships are suspiciously intertwined. I can't wait for the sequel! Well done Mr. Latreille.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Loved this book!" I couldn't put this book down. I found each page alluring and especially interesting because the setting is in my home town. Jack Sabre is a unique and likeable character who has many unanswered questions in his life. He is very passionate in everything he does including his growing connection to World War II. His life is changing quickly and you become very wrapped up in the time of war, the despair, the urgency to stand up for what is right and the so many mixed feelings. I can hardly wait for the next book in this series! Don’t keep me waiting too long!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from gimme more I really enjoyed this book and wish I didn't have to wait for the next one to come out to find out what's going to happen next. I'm a fan of History books and more specifically World War II. The way the author described the events leading up to the attempted take over of Europe and the way canadians viewed the participation of Canada in the war efforts kept me reading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read! I bought this book to read over my summer holiday and let me tell you, I couldn’t put it down. I was quite surprised at how well the story developed seeing as this was the Author’s first book. The story is written in a very unique way, full of enthusiasm and energy, which I find really makes this book the page-turner that it is. The main character (Jack) is sometimes described in a way that seems surreal and unusual, but the Author does a good job at making him humane and likable. Although this story is based on fictional characters, reading about factual events which are unraveling so close to home make the book that much more captivating. Overall, I thought the Author was successful in making the readers connect with the characters and I’m really looking forward to reading his next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it!!! I had no idea what to expect when I purchased this book and I can say that it exceeded my expectations. The characters are exciting and well developed. I had trouble putting this book down as I always wanted to know what was going to happen next. The book also brought out various emotions for me. I keep talking about this book for my family and friends. All that's left for me to say is -- go out and get it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good! I picked up this book by mistake and I was very happy that I did. While it was strange to read a book where the action occured in my city, the author did a very good job at recreating the environment of the 1920's. The story is written in a particular style that seems to be specific to the author but this will have to be confirmed in the next book. I was quite surprised that the book was a page-turner since I am not a fan of books pertaining to 1920. While some of the of the chapters may not always be action-packed, they often lead you to read the following chapter. The main character is interesting and abnormal, yet the author remains within the realm of reality. This is especially true for the chapter called ''The Letters'', which to me, was the most interesting yet scary one. Overall, I think this book was very good. The writting style may have been different at times but it met its objectives.
