Stranded Front FAC72


All Marine Corps reservist Jake Chalmers wants is to give his dying wife a last, romantic cruise to the Philippines. Unable to save her in a mass murder aboard ship, he washes ashore an uninhabited jungle island, where he discovers three other survivors. Heartbroken that he failed to save his wife, he is determined not to fail these helpless castaways.

Federal prosecutor Eve Eriksson rescues a young girl and her elderly great-aunt from the same ship. They badly need Jake’s survival skills, but why is he so maddeningly careful? She needs to hurry home to nail a significant career trial. And, please, before Jake learns her secret that she’s responsible for his wife’s death.

    Thoroughly engrossed in Stranded! How in the world are you going to top the adventure in a sequel? I was unable to put this novel down. Now that I am finished, I guess I will have to catch up all the work I put aside! Thank you for the break!

    I woul love to know when more books become available for kindle. I have just finished reading Stranded and I loved it.

  3. Patti says:

    Wow! What a roller coaster ride! I could not put this book down! It was one crisis after another, and yet they did survive, and they all came to a much fuller relationship with God through the trials. I liked that this book kept you intensely riveted on the story and at the same time relayed the message of God’s love and forgiveness without being preachy. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be in such a terrifying situation. It was obviously not the stuff reality TV pretends survival is like. I am certain most of us would have times of questioning whether God really cared under such difficult and frightening circumstances. But in the end, God’s love and care for His children perseveres, even when we stumble. Thank you for a riveting 5 hours of reading. On to the sequel!

    • Oh, Patti, I’m so delighted you shared with us! Perks up our day and keeps us writing! Thank you!

        And I hadn’t intended to, but I just mowed through Forgotten! I enjoyed it every bit as much as the first book for many of the same reasons, though Stranded was my favorite. More adventure and less angst I think. More heartbreak in the second book. But at least there was no question Betty was in a better place. I am afraid I don’t feel the least bit sorry that her brother-in-law probably ISN’T in that better place. The Just Judge is the only one who knows for sure. It was a wonderful wrap-up, I am glad Jake and Eve were both able to come to the point of forgiveness for those who had so terribly wronged them, to leave things in the hands of the Just Judge. They won’t ever forget, but forgiveness removes the terrible load of anger and hatred. BTW, I am thinking that a few years down the line, Crystal and Brett would pull the family together even more! 5 years from now the age difference is not as significant!

      • LOL, Patti, for mowing through Forgotten! And yeah, sniffle, I hate what happened to Betty. I’d become quite fond of her. And, well, uh, you just might be right about Crystal and Brett, but for sure I’m not telling …

    I really enjoyed Stranded. Thought I’d just give it a shot and maybe a few pages then on to 5th e next book. Well that didn’t work out. I was hooked. Very good and different adventure novel. Looking forward to the next one.
