Set in the land of sunshine on the sparkling waters of the Indian River of coastal Florida. A clever young real estate operator fights to rehabilitate a small but potentially beautiful marina, the "hurricane hole" sought by boats when wild winds rage. Rod Gentry battles sabotage, arson, and a crooked county commissioner to make a name for the marina and enough money to fulfill his wife's hopes of building a new children's home. The blond-haired orphan waif Rachel, in a wheelchair, inspires him to reach higher than he ever thought of reaching. In the end it is his marina tenants, living on their boats, that protect and support him. Bill Croft, the dock master, is fiercely loyal, even when it means taking his shotgun to intruders. Abe Pickett, ex-mercenary and Bill's friend, solves problems with plastic explosives in the middle of the night. And Winston English, the stunt man who lives at the marina gives Rod an astounding perspective of what the marina could become, and why it should.
