In Nancy Baker's "Island Adrift," a young woman finds spiritual help during both environmental and personal crises. In "Island Adrift" by Nancy Baker, an enigmatic, divine being helps the residents of a hurricane-embattled island. As Hurricane Ivan strikes the Grand Cayman Island in
2004, Christine Johnson faces the catastrophe alone, yearning for her best friend and mentor Mac, who is off the island. Who Mac is-and what he represents-is the cornerstone of Baker's spiritual novel. Missing and believed to be dead, Mac makes a sudden reappearance, and his provocative messages and examples help Christine return order to her disrupted life. Intended to be spiritual rather than religious, "Island Adrift" aims to explore the ways in which Mac represents wholeness and hope even amidst the destructive force of the hurricane. The first in the new series The Mac Books, Island Adrift is based on Baker's own beliefs of what it means to be human, and the incidents in the novel come from her own experiences. Through the character of the Christ-like Mac, Baker hopes to offer real answers to life's problems to all people, without adhering to strict Christian doctrines.
