He soon finds he is drawn to the excitement and camaraderie on his Liberty ship the SS Juniper Springs and easily slips into the sailors life. However, it isnt long that he discovers that supplying the troops in unprotected waters exposes him to some of the fiercest battles in WWII, testing not only his grit and courage, but his sanity as well.The Seas That Mourn is a riveting story of the unsung heroes who navigated dangerous waters and perilous conditions to provide American and Allied troops with critical supplies of ammunition, fuel and goods.

These sailors, often overlooked and even belittled for their service, were key in turning the tide of the war.“In The Seas That Mourn, Patrick Smith does for the Merchant Marine what his previous novels have done for Florida Crackers. Flourishing his decency and humanity, as always, he has come through with another fine book for Smith collectors.”~Al Burt, Former Miami HeraldColumnist & Award Winning AuthorA Land Remembered for the high seas.

Once again, Patrick Smith is back. This time, though, he has taken to the high seas in a novel based on his experiences with the merchant marine during WWII. This heartfelt work shows that Patrick Smith is a novelist who is never off his game. ~Barnes & Noble Reader
