A mother’s heart is a treasure trove of love, memories, hopes—and more than a few secrets.
Alice Jenkins’ heart held more secrets than most mothers could begin to imagine. Twice married, with a son from each union, she treasured family secrets over the course of fifty years that, if revealed, would not only change their own lives, but the course of her nation, and perhaps mankind.
The three-generation chronicle of Alice’s Boys is the saga of two half-brothers and how the windstorms of fortune twist them through poverty to riches, ranching to sailing the high seas, surviving two world wars, but pulling them apart—only to draw them back together aboard an experimental battleship whose very existence has been hidden from the world.
There, Alice’s Boys will find their way into what was surely the strangest—and most secret—naval battle of all time, in a series of events that may forever remain hidden from the archives of history.
