Alone on a Wide Wide Sea

“There were dozens of us on the ship, all up on deck for the leaving of Liverpool, gulls wheeling and crying over our heads, calling good-bye ??That is all I remember of England.”

Overcoming enormous hardships with fellow orphan Marty, Arthur is finally saved by the extraordinary people he meets and by his talent for boat-design and sailing. Now he has built a special boat for his daughter Allie ? a solo yacht designed to carry her to England in search of his long-lost sister. Will the threads of Arthur’s life finally come together?
