Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Joshua Johannssen has spent all of his life surrounded by sailboats. His grandfather designed them, his father built and raced them, his Einstein-obsessed mother knows why and how they work (or not). For Josh and his two siblings, their backyard was the Puget Sound and sailing their DNA. But both his sister and brother fled many years ago: Ruby to Africa and elsewhere to do good works on land, and Bernard to God-knows-where at sea, a fugitive and pirate. Suddenly thirty-one, Josh-who repairs boats of all kinds in a Steinbeckian marina south of Seattle-is pained and confused by whatever the hell went wrong with his volatile family. His parents are barely speaking, his mystified grandfather is drinking harder, and he himself-despite an endless and comic flurry of online dates-hasn't even come close to finding a girlfriend.   But when the Johannssens unexpectedly reunite for the most important race in these waters-all of them together on a classic vessel they made decades ago-they will be carried to destinies both individual and collective, and to a heart-shattering revelation.
