Overview

When the truth about Sam Witchall's false conviction is finally revealed, he can at last escape Australia and look toward home. On the journey back to England he faces pirates and a terrible storm before making the longed-for trip back up the river Thames. Finally reunited with his family in Norfolk, Sam realizes how much life at sea has become part of him. So when he hears that Napoleon plans to attack England, he is tempted to join the British navy once more, and finds himself midshipman on none other than the Victory, preparing for one of the most epic battles in history: Trafalgar.
Loyal readers will not want to miss the stirring conclusion to this dramatic series.
