First Voyage: Anthony Palmiotti, author
This is a shameless plug for my husband’s new book, and first novel, “First Voyage.” I was lucky enough to be able to read the book before it was sent to any publishers for review. I do read quite a bit, mostly crime stories, detective novels, and court related fiction. With a book almost always in my hand, I jumped at the opportunity to try something new.
“First Voyage” is a sea story. Having worked on a vessel for a three month period several years ago, I have some knowledge of ships. I thought that knowledge might be necessary to enjoy this book, but it wasn’t. This is a well-written novel about a young seaman who is on his first voyage aboard a ship called the Arrow. The journey takes the crew to Hamburg, where they must deal with issues with the Nazi regime. The story includes intrigue, danger and friendship. This is a book that includes something for everyone, and could be enjoyed by those who love the sea, as well as those who have never set foot on a ship.
I would definitely give this book five stars!
Thank you for allowing me to plug this book. The author knows very well I would have told him it sucked if I thought so. In the same vein, I would tell him if I loved it. Luckily I loved it so much I am helping him get the word out. Buy the book! Read it! You won’t be sorry. And if you’d like more information on the author, see his author website.
