8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set against dramatic Mediterranean Sea views and lush olive groves, "The Rocks" opens with a confrontation and a secret: What was the mysterious, catastrophic event that drove two honeymooners apart so suddenly and absolutely in 1948 that they never spoke again despite living on the same island for sixty more years? And how did their history shape the Romeo and Juliet like romance of their (unrelated) children decades later? Centered around a popular seaside resort club and its community, The Rocks is a double love story that begins with a mystery, then moves backward in time, era by era, to unravel what really happened decades earlier

Final voyage : a story of Arctic disaster and one fateful whaling season by Peter Nichols( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a maritime adventure set against a lush historical backdrop. In the summer of 1871, 32 whaling ships, carrying 12-year-old William Fish Williams, son of a whaling captain, and 1,218 other men, women, and children, were destroyed in an Arctic ice storm, launching a rescue operation of unparalleled daring and heroism. The impact of the disaster on America's first oil industry was catastrophic. Whale oil had made New Bedford, Massachusetts, the wealthiest town in the world. Brothers George and Matthew Howland led the town's fundamentalist Quaker whaling merchants in making New Bedford the Saudi Arabia of its day. But pushing their whale ships ever farther into uncharted seas in pursuit of a fast-diminishing resource, the Howlands -- and whalers like the Williams family aboard their fleet -- risked too much on a final, fateful voyage. Drawing on previously unpublished material, Final Voyage is a story of maritime disaster in the world's harshest seascape, and of the unprecedented rise and sudden fall of America's first oil industry -- which eerily prefigures today's modern economic collapse. - Jacket flap

A Voyage For Madmen Nine men set out to race each other around the world. Only one made it back by Peter Nichols( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It lay like a gauntlet thrown down; to sail around the world alone and non-stop. No one had ever done it, no one knew if it could be done. In 1968, nine men - six Englishmen, two Frenchmen and an Italian - set out to try, a race born of coincidence of their timing. One didn't even know how to sail. They had more in common with Captain Cook or Ferdinand Magellan than with the high-tech, extreme sailors of today, a mere forty years later. It was not the sea or the weather that determined the nature of their voyages but the men they were, and they were as different from one another as Scott from
