    Ebook [ At the Mercy of the Sea: The True Story of Three Sailors in a Caribbean Hurricane teachers] author John Kretschmer Read At the Mercy of the Sea: The True Story of Three Sailors in a Caribbean Hurricane I've read books by Mr. Kretschmer before so I already knew he is a fine writer. This book experience was different for me because by getting to know the characters (real people), feeling I knew them, just made reading the end of the book really tough.

    Ebook [ At the Mercy of the Sea: The True Story of Three Sailors in a Caribbean Hurricane teachers] author John Kretschmer Unbelievably good but humbling as I am only weeks from starting my own adventure on the sea.
