About the Book

What would you do with a second chance? It is September 1943 when the captured German submarine, U-830, fails to return to the surface with its American crew. Thomas Shield’s father was supposed to be on board that day but was ordered away at the last minute. Riddled with survivor’s guilt, Thomas’s father returns home and devotes his time to looking after the loved ones his deceased comrades left behind. Thomas, who feels ignored by his father, begins a dark journey fueled by his sense of abandonment. As substance abuse and psychological issues cloud Thomas’s reasoning and path forward, he immerses himself in a rather dark and tragic existence—or so he thinks. He becomes less sure of what is real and what has simply been renting space in his head, when he meets a mysterious stranger who believes in second chances. As Thomas struggles with his predicament, he returns to the past, with help from his father’s diary and others, where he learns the true meaning of sacrifice. In this historical novel, the troubled son of a Second World War veteran suspects he has been offered a second chance to reconcile the past and heal. “Riveting from the onset with a cliff hanger that leaves the reader begging for more, only to find an enthralling tale.” – Laura’s List: Books for Women
