The Penitent Heart, is one man’s journey from despair to hope. It is the story of Bill, a househusband, who after causing a road traffic accident while being under the influence of alcohol, and where the other driver dies, Bill subsequently suffers an emotional breakdown. He abandons Ruth, his wife of five years, and her three young daughters by her first marriage, to become a cook on a charter yacht bound for the Amazon River.
Bill finds himself sucked into a tale of intrigue. Why has Captain Larsen accepted this unusual charter instead of the regular cruising waters of the Caribbean? And Dr Kaufmann and his team of anthropologists; are they really investigating the effects of low rainfall on the indigenous people of the Amazon River?

The Penitent Heart, is a modern, action packed, sea-faring adventure story about those who Bill meets on his unexpected journey - characters to love and hate, those that live, those that die and those that Bill left behind. And high on the character-list is the mighty Leviathan, 105 feet of rail down, spray tossing, storm defying sail boat.

Bill has run away from home only to find that he can run away from life and his responsibilities but not from himself.
