One lucky winner to receive an eBook copy of Landfall by Joseph Jablonski!
About the Book: (Amazon)
Forty years ago, a young woman was murdered aboard an American freighter. Now, her children are grown and they want answers. Jake Thomas is the only one who can tell them what really happened.
But after a lifetime at sea, Jake has finally settled into a new marriage and a comfortable retirement. He’s afraid that digging up the secrets he’s kept buried will undo everything and lead him to a truth he doesn’t want to face.
In this riveting story-within-a-story, Jake’s peaceful routine in Portland, Oregon, stands in stark contrast to his early days as a merchant seaman in Subic Bay, when he set off on a journey to discover his dark side. A journey that hasn’t yet ended.
Like Joseph Conrad, Joseph Jablonski has created a story set at sea that is as much a careful observation of human nature and a powerful condemnation of war as it is a fascinating sea story.
About the Author: (Amazon)
Joe Jablonski passed away suddenly in May 2014 from natural causes. He left behind several unpublished manuscripts including LandFall. His wife, Darlyn Jablonski, and son, Peter Jablonski, are very excited to have published LandFall posthumously as one of Joe's great aspirations was to get more manuscripts published (prior to LandFall, Three Star Fix was published in 2008 and Pirate Nights, a NY Times Op-Ed piece, was published in 2013).
Joe grew up in Nebraska, graduated from the US Merchant Marine Academy in 1970, then pursued a career in the merchant marines. He rose to the top of the ranks and retired after sailing several years as Captain of APL's MV President Kennedy containership in 1998. Joe was a lover of life. He loved dinner parties, travel, tennis, scrabble and adventure. He passed away suddenly and is greatly missed.
We are very grateful to Michele Orwin of Bacon Press Books and we hope that you enjoy LandFall.
Peter Jablonski and Darlyn Jablonski
