Review Text

It was 1805 - the eve of Lord Nelson's encounter at Trafalgar. Young Nell Henchman watched as her father and two older brothers joined a lifeline to rescue men from a wrecked ship. The Henchmans were on their way to the coast of England to spend the summer. The events which occur after little Martin finds a man, nearly ??, on the beach, form an intriguing plot. This historically backgrounded novel reveals a new author who is a skillful writer of dialogue and narrative, and who has made good use of an exciting period of history. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
