AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What makes a life when all memory of that life has been lost? Or never existed. An old man and an old woman are found in a lifeboat, washed into the waters of an island nation. They remember nothing. It is the job of the young interpreter, herself a foreigner, to discover the truth about them, before the worst is assumed. A search for the strangers' lives, lost at sea, becomes a quest to save their lives, and then her own. The Lifeboat tells a tale of love and abandonment, of pirates and storms at sea, of discovery and self-discovery, at any cost.' (Libraries Australia)

Notes

  • Dedication: To Chris, with love and a car chase.
