This review is from: The Kinsman - A novel (Paperback)
It is time that the reading public take note of the works of Gardner McKay. I have read, "Journey Without a Map", "Toyer", and his most recently published work, "The Kinsman". All three are vastly different, but have a tone that prevails in them all. Mr. McKay loved life and all it has to offer. They are important works that lead the reader into a world that most of us will never know with an excitement that leaves you wanting more.I am not an avid sailor, but I felt the thrill and tension of his mission to win the America's Cup. I felt like I was there thru 321 pages of unbelievable trial, intolerence, intrigue and intense determination.
Gardner McKay was an extraordinary man, with extraordinary gifts of storytelling. This book, "The Kinsman" is a must read, as are all of his works. Don't miss out on his ability to take you out of your world into that of the fight, against all odds, of winning the America's Cup with an improbable crew of Rwandans.
