During the heart of World War II, four military chaplains boarded the legendary U.S. Army Transport ship Dorchester with the daunting task of taking care of the 902 passengers aboard. These very different four men would demonstrate to the world they shared an uncommon faith and valor. George Lansing Fox, a Methodist minister, Alexander D. Goode, a Rabbi, Clark V. Poling, a Dutch Reformed minister, and John P. Washington, a Catholic priest, work day by day to make life aboard the Dorchester bearable as they sail for Greenland. On February 3, 1943, a German submarine ends their journey. This historical novel captures the feel of America in the middle of the war, when the tide was clearly turning our way. Aboard the Dorchester is a cast of characters whose lives are changed forever by their encounters with the chaplains, including the men whose lives are saved by the chaplains’ heroic act.
