Book Review: Every Boat Turns South by J. P. White

Title: Every Boat Turns South
Author: J.P. White
ISBN: 978-1-57962-188-9
Publisher: Permanent Press
Published: Sept. 2009

Matt Younger returns home after not seeing or speaking to his parents in 3 years.  Life at home is not how he expected.  His father has congenital heart failure and his mother is bitter from not hearing from her only living son and from having to care for her husband.

Matt takes over caring for his father and starts telling his father what he has been doing for the last 3 years. Matt worked as a captain, moving boats from the Eastern coast down to the Caribbean.  In his most recent job, Matt is hired to captain a boat from Florida to St. Thomas.  He runs into a little trouble when he decides to steal 2 million dollars worth of cocaine and then loses it in a storm.  He ends up up in the Domician Republic, and then runs into a little trouble in the form of a beautiful woman. 

This is a very well written novel that has the ebb and flow of a poem.  I was not surprised to find out that J.P. White has published 4 books of poetry.  I am not a sailor so I was relieved that the book was not too full of sailing jargon.  The characters are vibrant and seem very real.  You can picture the men and women Matt encounters as he travels through the Caribbean.  This is a great book that I highly recommend.  Photobucket
