Description

In the novel The Cay, a young white boy and an old black man are stranded on a small sandy cay in the Caribbean Sea following a shipwreck. Eleven-year-old Phillip was blinded by flying debris when a torpedo struck the SS Hato, and old Timothy has taught him how to survive. This prequel-sequel tells the rest of their tale in alternating chapters--the compelling story of two very different people who share the courage and tenacity to turn their dreams into reality.

Professional reviews

"This is a good example of a book that gains greatly from even a modest audio production. The story of a young white boy's moving friendship with an old black Virgin Islander during WWII is set largely in St. Thomas. There's no way a child reading to himself would be able to imagine the delightful, lilting rhythms and unique pronunciations of that local dialect. Jeff Woodman makes an otherwise unexceptional and unadorned reading sparkle with his characterizations of the aged Timothy and other islanders, this despite Woodman being, apparently, neither old nor black.
