A powerful tale set at the turn of the twentieth century, THE LIFEBOAT is the story of Grace Sachs, an enigmatic young woman whose life is forever altered when the ocean liner on which she is honeymooning mysteriously explodes. Her husband secures her a place on a lifeboat with a group of strangers, but they soon realize their boat is over capacity, and that they must reduce their numbers in order to survive.

THE LIFEBOAT is a page-turning story of moral dilemmas but also the moving and memorable story of Grace's determination to fight for her place - in the boat, and in the world
