If Caroline's Sail is a novella- sized taste of bigger things to come, the literary world will soon be a better place. Make that a great place!
Ross Venner shows remarkable skill in blending a passion for sailing into a story of optimism, human frailties and the subtleties of life, that captures your imagination from page one. The breadth of strong characters invokes both passion and loathing in equal parts and the myriad of subplots keeps the story busily rattling along and leaves you asking for more.
Here's to the promised forthcoming novels, Seakeeper and Doc Rose, "coming soon from Ross Venner".
