A story about finding what you didn’t know was missing in the most unusual of places. Set in a rugged and long-forgotten area, where the shore meets the tide, The House the Captian Built spins an inviting world that time passes by.

Talks of loneliness, searching, and finding connection in a difficult world, are things we all struggle with at times. The House the Captain Built is a character-driven, fast-paced, and engaging story that will connect with readers regardless of age. Follow the journey of a boy searching for someone he lost, and along the way finds he is not alone in experiencing loss.
