Friends for life, young Ryan and Austin left summer camp for an end-of-the-summer Caribbean sailing trip with promises of high sea adventure. However, a monstrous storm changes their lives forever, leaving them alone on an island to grow from boys to men, and discover a new life of survival in their own way. Years later, a last minute rescue from the hands of angry Cuban soldiers destroyed their joyous tropical life together, while forcing the boys to live according America’s current values and expectations, but they couldn’t do it. They couldn’t forget the love they had on the island, and together, they fought everything the world put in their path, to find a new paradise faraway from home. They couldn’t change the events that changed their lives, but they could change where they lived, and how they lived on a new island. They would make it their mission to help others find the peace, joy, and love they found.

Stranded is an innocent love story, packed with adventure and thrills, passion without limits, and enough emotion to pull a tear from a statue. The laughs and tears feel all too real, while the reader discovers the inevitable conclusion of saying, why not a love like this? The story is fiction, but you’ll catch yourself looking for their island, as well as a love like theirs!
