Description

Aldrick is obsessed with finding his grandfather's treasure. More than half a century and seventeen voyages have failed to locate his ships after they wrecked in Windward Passage, deeply-laden with pirate plunder and homeward-bound from the Caribbean in 1679. Elizabeth, the firstborn of Baron Leigh, was raised in Warwickshire, about as far from the sea as is possible in Britain. Recently betrothed to Aldrick, she doesn't want him to sail out of her life. We begin the story as Aldrick escorts Elizabeth to meet his eighty-five-year-old grandfather. -||- First Place Winner in Round One and Shortlisted in the Open Novella Contest -||-
