About the Book

This enthralling adventure is set in British Columbia, Canada, and is a fictional account of a serious earthquake, which is predicted at some point in the future. The Wallis family find themselves literally thrown into danger when the quake occurs and three generations take to the sea in an open boat, hoping to find refuge in their seagoing vessel, Sea Lure. How they meet life-threatening situations and manage to survive makes for an exciting story. This disaster tale is told by Angie, the thirteen-year-old daughter who is an entirely credible narrator who draws us in and holds our interest throughout. It is clear from the prelude that they do make it to Sea Lure, but that is only the beginning of their struggles. Discovering within themselves resources of courage and determination, which they were not aware they possessed, the family faces threats from elements, as well as from people caught up in the disaster. Cascadia is a very enjoyable and satisfying read.
