“The echoey sounds of stretching and cracking ice filled the inlet. The surround had become an arena, an eternal, unearthly battleground. The white whale broke the surface slowly. Inching forward, it broke the ice ahead of its brow, sending mountainous shards into the starry night.”
In love with Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, a prequel beginning with the American Revolution was composed. Ahab, a Love Story, is a romantic adventure describing and humanizing the boy, the son, the lover, and the crushed soul who became Ahab. Upon its completion, a sequel to Moby Dick “beckoned me.”
What became of the Rachel’s survivor(s), of Melville, of the white whale? Meet Carney, Isaiah, Isaac and Irene. Fall in love with them. Death to Moby Dick, a Love Story, is a novel from my heart to yours. It takes us to the beginnings of World War I. If you are a fan of Love Stories, real History, Adventures on the High Seas, and Melville’s Moby Dick, this is a must-read.
Enjoy & Godspeed!
