"Without the efforts of Simon Lake, underwater navigation would be very different from what it is today. Argonaut: The Submarine Legacy of Simon Lake illustrates the influence of Lake's creation and passion."--BOOK JACKET. "Simon Lake was the classic American inventor, complete with a rival, John Holland, who reaped most of history's praise for submarine design. However, it was Lake who launched his first working submarine in 1894 at the age of twenty-seven in the rivers of his native New Jersey. In 1898, his steel vessel, the Argonaut, completed a thousand-mile trek up the Atlantic coast.

From Publishers Weekly
Sober and searching yet sublimely comic, this impressive debut about a modern-day missionary in Taiwan charts a journey away from reflexive faith and toward a broader understanding of the world and its ways. Reminiscent of the work of Graham Greene and Norman Rush, but possessing a quirky innocence and gravitas all its own, the novel is crammed with heady matters, clashes of cultures, ill-considered schemes and unrequited love. Vincent Saunders, a man with strong religious beliefs, leaves his tiny Illinois hamlet to take a job as a Christian missionary in Taiwan. As the only volunteer in the mid-sized city of Toulio, he establishes and runs the ministry house, while teaching English classes to make ends meet. His Toulio acquaintances are an odd bunch: fellow boarder Alec, a foul-mouthed, hashish-smoking Scot;...

Book Review
Both Lily Blake and John Kipling grew up in Lake Henry, New Hampshire, and both left after high school to pursue their dreams--singing for Lily and writing for John. Now the two have returned separately to seek shelter in the small lakeside town due to the disastrous results of paparazzi fever--Lily as a victim, John as a member of the press responsible for a tragedy.

But Lily can't avoid John, who also lives on the lake and at first sees Lily's story as prime fodder for the novel that can break him into publishing. But soon the vulnerable, besieged woman elicits...
