Clamcake Summer is the story of one man's attempt to eat every clamcake in Rhode Island in one summer (or die frying). It is a funny, informative and voracious story of marathon eating and the seashore foods we crave, and of the joys and traditions of summer in New England. This is the first audiobook entirely dedicated to the clamcake. A blend of memoir and history, Clamcake Summer is perfect for listening to on the beach for anyone who grew up eating these delectable fritters, or for those who dream of ordering their first dozen at a take out window.
Four future Navy officers, two women and two men, fall under the spell of charismatic leader James Drayton at Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island. They form a secret society called the Great Lovers, named after a poem by Rupert Brooke. When Drayton dies in a suspicious explosion on an aircraft carrier, the Great Lovers become the chief suspects. The surviving members of the secret society must defend their friend and their own freedom in a court-martial for mutiny. Trial of Honor is a fast-paced naval thriller about honor, both personal and national.
