Eleven-year-old Evan Bryant¹s life is changed forever when a letter arrives from his grandfather, who has been presumed dead for thirty years. In the dog days of summer, with no school and nothing to do, Evan can hardly wait for the old sailor to take him fishing and share his incredible tales of life on the high seas. But when Grandpa Pentreath arrives, he brings with him a shocking secret‹one he¹s sure will drive Evan and his mother away forever. Dramatic and powerful, this novel shows that it takes tremendous courage to ask for forgiveness‹and tremendous courage to forgive.
