Editorial Reviews

Review

“This poignant history should be an easy sell to readers of adventure, seafaring, or rescue stories. A Disney film is in development.” ―School Library Journal

The Finest Hours is a touching account, a sensitive rendering of what might be called four indescribably chaotic conditions. . . . Tougias and Sherman never sensationalize, never go beyond the facts, and yet capture all the pain, physical and emotional, of the survivors and their families.” ―Providence Journal on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)

“This book captures the wit, grit and sacrifice of Coasties and their boats.” ―Minneapolis Star Tribune on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)

“Tougias and Sherman reach their peak of tension in the sink-or-swim moments when mariners abandoned ship and chanced their lives on their rescuers' skill and bravery. . . . Excellent.” ―Booklist on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)

“Nearly 57 years later, it's a breathtaking story that still defies the imagination.” ―Cape Cod Chronicle on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)

“It's good to know that real heroes exist. . . . Incredible.” ―Concord Monitor on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)

“Gripping. . . . Tougias and Sherman ably narrate the desperate struggles of crew members on both the wrecks and the rescue boats. . . . Will make readers appreciate the bravery of the men who put their lives on the line. . . . Action-packed.” ―Publishers Weekly on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)

“A gripping tale of Coast Guard heroism. . . . An action-packed account of rescue at sea.” ―Kirkus Reviews on The Finest Hours (Simon & Schuster edition)
