Summary :

When a ship capsizes off the coast of Nantucket in 1892, trapping seven men with no hope of rescue, Keeper Walter Chase and a small group of men risk their lives by getting into a boat on the deadly seas and attempting a daring rescue. Such a thing is on the brink of foolhardiness, but Chase's determination is awesome to behold. He will save those men.

To the alien observers outside the normal flow of time, Chase is about to do something extraordinary. He will alter the flow of local time, disrupting rotational and entropic energies on a supra-galactic scale, and they must intervene to ensure that the time-flow of the continuum has a proper resolution. But Chase's metaphysical extensions into spacetime, aware of these forces while Chase himself is not, have other ideas, and stopping or altering him will prove more difficult than it at first seems.

For he will save those men.
