Swept Away Summary

Swept Away is a complex psychological drama played out in the format of high adventure. Some readers may feel that too much introspection intrudes, impeding the drive of the narrative, but many others will relish the author's attempt to convey all of the thoughts going through the mind of the narrator, Jeanette Taylor. Jeanette and four companions become trapped and separated in the middle of a flood, resulting in a perilous struggle to survive.

How she copes is the heart of the adventure.
