Terrific Book Tuesday: The Seafaring Women of the Vera B. by Susan Davis and James S. Davis

Susan Davis and her son, James Davis, work together to bring a story unlike any I have read before. The Seafaring Women of the Vera B is truly a unique piece of work which carries you off to sea. The amount of research that must have been conducted to create this novel is astounding and fascinating, and the plot is intriguing and believable.

It is truly a rare breed of book, especially in Christian fiction.
