Book Description
John Whelan, champion oarsman, has all but given up on competitive rowing. On the cusp of forty, the Outer Cove fisherman is trying to accept that his time as a rower has passed. His wife agrees, telling him, ďBreaking your back down on that pond, thatís a young manís sport.Ē But a fracas with the Torbay rowing crew in a St. Johnís tavern rekindles his desire to beat his long-time rivals in the upcoming St. Johnís Regatta. With the regatta just ten months away, can he and cox Watt Power assemble a championship crew in time? The answer is the stuff of legends.

A Stroke in Time is Gerard Doranís debut novel. Inspired by true events, this tale of the record-breaking Outer Cove rowing crew of 1901 is a tribute to the everyman hero and a dedication to the outport fishing culture of more than a century ago.

About the Author
Gerard Doran, currently a resident of St. Johnís, Newfoundland, grew up in Outer Cove, a former fishing village five miles from the capital city. He has been active in the sport of rowing for many years as a rower and a coach, and he is a two-time Royal St. Johnís Regatta championship coxswain. Gerard is a member of the board of directors of the regatta committee. A Stroke in Time is his first novel.
