Grace Winter, twenty-two, is both a newlywed and a widow. She is also on trial for her life.

In the summer of 1914, the elegant ocean liner carrying her and her husband Henry across the Atlantic suffers a mysterious explosion. Setting aside his own safety, Henry secures Grace a place in a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize is over capacity. For any to live, some must die.

As the castaways battle the elements, and each other, Grace recollects the unorthodox way she and Henry met, and the new life of privilege she thought she’d found. Will she pay any price to keep it?

The Lifeboat is a page-turning novel of hard choices and survival, narrated by a woman as unforgettable and complex as the events she describes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The Lifeboat traps the reader in a story that is exciting at the literal level and brutally moving at the existential: I read it in one go.”

    Emma Donoghue, author of Room

  • “I can’t imagine any reader who looks at the opening pages wanting to put the book down…It’s so refreshing to read a book that is ambitious and yet not tricksy, where the author seems to be in command of her material and really on top of her game. It’s beautifully controlled and totally believable.”

    Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall

  • Selected for the April 2012 Indie Next List
  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A 2012 BookPage Best Book for Fiction
