Concealed from search crews on a remote Pacific atoll, the lone survivor of a crashed jetliner is given an ultimatum to father a white baby as an offering to human traffickers, or be sacrificed to an inimical Volcano God poised for eruption. But injuries have rendered the man unable to produce the goods, forcing him to rally help from unlikely allies: a melancholy deity he suspects is imaginary, and a young beauty sure to be among the next children stolen.
Faith is the sole path to salvation for both the castaway and the inhabitants who distrust him for his skin color. DASH IN THE BLUE PACIFIC is the story of an island people’s struggle for survival, and one man’s opportunity to alter their fate.
A new novel by Cole Alpaugh, coming April 1, 2015, from Coffeetown Press.
