(From the publisher):
By leading the most famous mutiny in the world, aboard the HMS Bounty in 1789, Fletcher Christian risked being hanged. But what happened to him after the mutiny? There were stories that he survived a vicious massacre in the South Pacific and boarded a ship back to England. We know that he had several children by his Polynesian wife, including a daughter named Mary. Could he and Mary have reunited in England?
Respected writer of historical fiction Ann Rinaldi brings her magic touch to the fascinating prospect "What if?" and weaves and enthralling tale told through the words of Fletcher Christian's fourteen-year-old daughter, Mary. Behind the privileged walls of her new boarding school, Mary struggles to fit in, trying not to reveal the identity of her father, who dishonored his family name.
Rollicking adventures await Mary as she ventures out into London's crowded streets, desperately searching to see her father's loving face one more time.
