Starbuck, Nantucket Redemption

In this detailed and extraordinary debut novel, Garth Jeffries delivers a gripping story of wealth, adventure, survival, and forgiveness. 


Peter Bois is one of the wealthiest men on Nantucket but is far from successful; his business is being picketed for polluting the oceans, his wife wants a divorce, and his best friend is dead. 


But fate has plans for him. 


On a picnic at the beach with his alienated family, Peter is caught up in a riptide and transported back in time to the early 19th-century as a greenhand on a Nantucket whaleship, clueless to where he is and ignorant to what is expected of him. Struggling to accept his new reality, he must confront the man he is and come to grips with life nearly two hundred years in the past as the ship pursues whales and battles storms thousands of miles out to sea. 


His only help? A crewman who looks and acts just like his dead best friend.


On a voyage bristling with danger and death, Peter must survive long enough to figure out how to get back to his own time and back to where he can right his many wrongs.

Garth Jeffries has had a passion for creative writing for as long as he can remember. But a career in writing was not initially in the cards for Garth, and he pursued a career in marketing to not only pay the bills but provide an outlet for his creative writing ambitions. 


During his thirty-plus year career, he made multiple attempts to kickstart his novel, and despite exploring numerous storylines, life and career were always there to get in the way of its successful completion. But last year, Garth found himself “retired” and rather than looking for a new job decided instead to focus on that life-long dream. The result is Starbuck Nantucket Redemption, a novel that combines his love of Nantucket, history, and the importance of giving back. As one reviewer (not his mom) put it, “A thrilling story of family, hope, change and redemption with vivid details of past and present.”


Garth is actively working on novel #2, which will have AI at the heart of the storyline. He is targeting a late 2020 release, that is, if life doesn’t get in the way.


Raised on the East Coast, he now lives in the Kansas City metropolitan area with his wife of 32 years, their daughter, and a stubborn but loveable Norwich Terrier, Gracie.
