"Cape Cod Surprise brings to life what it is like to face a vicious hurricane. I kept reaching for my lifejacket and pulling up my hood throughout this fast-paced narrative." -Gary Jobson, President of US Sailing

Oliver's Surprise is about a twelve year old boy who goes back to 1938, just before the Great Hurricane hits. Set in coastal Rhode Island, the book includes several illustrations, a glossary of sailing terms, and a history of the hurricane.
