- Author Bio
Greg tries to do the right thing—and gets more than he bargained for.
Greg is an avid sailor. On a solo trip off the rugged Newfoundland coast, he stumbles upon a family of desperate refugees stranded in a lifeboat. Fearing for their lives if they are deported to their homeland, the family convinces Greg to help them, and keep their existence secret. He promises not to call the authorities and takes the family home. When his plan begins to unravel, and the family flees into the teeth of an oncoming storm, Greg goes after them. A thrilling story that demonstrates the importance of community and the power of conviction, Refuge Cove is also an exciting adventure.
"A fast paced story that manages to incorporate suspense, social issues and family matters...Greg is a strong male protagonist who will appeal to reluctant readers of both genders."
