A young couple on the trip of a lifetime become trapped in a nightmare when they board a stranger's boat
Johnny and his new bride Clem have arrived in Turkey for a year's honeymoon. Young and blissfully happy, but poor, they are surviving on love, luck, and a spirit of adventure. So when a boat appears out of a raging storm, crewed by a bohemian couple who represent everything Johnny and Clem want to be, they do not think twice about stepping on board. But all is not as it seems. And when they finally open their eyes to the truth, the boat is in the middle of the vast open sea. With echoes of The Beach, this is a hypnotic, emotionally charged novel about two sweet young lovers who lose their innocence in paradise.
