An intensely personal book of such enormous power and beauty that it will leave readers absolutely speechless

When Jack, in the 39th year of his life, learns that he is suffering from an incurable disease that will eventually plunge him into a series of crippling symptoms and debilitating treatments, he decides to quit his job, refurbish his small sailboat, and embark on a journey with his older brother, Joe, to Walker Island, a tiny dot on the chart somewhere south of Bermuda.

On what promises to be the greatest adventure of their lives, the brothers develop a closeness they never felt before. But as they sail farther eastward, and as Joe asks for greater detail about their course, Jack reveals a dark truth: that there is no Walker Island, and that for him this will be a one-way journey.
