Gracie, March 13, 2013 (view all comments by Gracie)
Charlotte Rogan has a unique gift for creating atmosphere. The story opens with Grace Winter awaiting trial for murder, and how she got there is the heart of this story. The book is not titled The Lifeboat for nothing. After the ship Grace and her husband were sailing on sank, she is left on a lifeboat, and that lifeboat became Grace's whole world.

As time passes and food, water, and hope begin to run out, so do the norms of society and basic human interaction. Moods darken and morals shift--if they're lost altogether. Life before the lifeboat is a distant thing, a memory of another life that gets farther and father away. Reading Grace's account of what passed on the boat after returning to civilization is like reliving in a bad dream--it's fascinating and enthralling but nothing one wants to get too close to. Monotonous hunger, thirst, weakness, and despair envelop the passengers. There is no escape from it. There is no escape from each other. There is only survival and what one has to do to ensure it.

This book is beautifully written, more and more captivating as it goes along. It's amazing what people are capable of given the right circumstances, and Rogan has created those circumstances with an adroit hand.
