Publisher's Summary

The instant number one New York Times best seller

The stunning new novel from the best-selling author of global phenomenon Tuesdays with Morrie.

Adrift in a raft after a terrible shipwreck, 10 strangers struggle to survive while they wait for rescue.

After three days, short on water, food and hope, they spot a man floating in the waves.

They pull him on board - and the survivor claims he can save them.

But should they put their trust in him?

Will any of them see home again?

And why did the ship really sink?

The Stranger in the Lifeboat is not only a deeply moving novel about the power of love and hope in the face of danger but also a mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Thoughtful & Wonderful

As a huge Mitch Albom fan, this book is truly beautiful. Easy to follow. Flows gracefully. Gorgeous words. Thought provoking. A book of love and faith in whatever you believe. Still no book will ever beat The Time keeper which is Mitch Alboms best closely followed by Tuesdays with Morrie, oh, and the five people you meet in heaven. This book is still absolutely glorious. Thank you.

Not good.

When I bought this (audio)book, it wasn’t made clear in the summary that this was pseudo religious rubbish wrapped up in a paper thin plot.

Must watch out for more from this author and avoid them!

Best seller list - WTF?

Special

Easy to read. It is written in a way it’s easy to imagine every character from the book.
You start the book and won’t be able to stop until you finish it.
It is special.
