|A Newbery Medalist delivers an enthralling family saga in which two children cross an ocean 200 hundred years apart: Sam in 1805, and Molly in 2005. Separate yet together, Sam and Molly struggle through fear and excitement to a final ordeal that terrifyingly tests their courage.|
From the Publisher:
Alternating chapters follow the mysterious connection between a homesick English girl living in present-day America and an eleven-year-old boy serving in the British Royal Navy in 1803, aboard the H.M.S.
Susan Cooper was raised during the chaos and horror of World War II. When she was 27, she married American widower Nicholas Grant and moved from England to the United States to live with him and his three children. Cooper has remained in the U.S., where she writes her books, many of which are based on English and Welsh myths. In 1976 she won the Newbery Medal for THE GREY KING, part of her Dark Is Rising series based on the legend of King Arthur. In addition to these young adult works, Cooper also works as a journalist and a playwright. She is admired for her picture books, including THE SILVER COW: A WELSH TALE and THE SELKIE GIRL.
