Overview

ILL WIND TO AMERICA!

America is the land of ten-year-old Hannah's dreams. For her and her sister, twelve-year-old Abigail, just leaving Chelmsford for London with her father and their stepmother is an adventure. But the real excitement begins when they board the Arbella and set sail for Massachusetts Bay.

Their voyage in the dark, smelly hold is unlike anything Hannah could have imagined. Then there's Zach, the indentured servant. Not even disapproving Abigail can keep Hannah away from her new friend with his tales of raging storms and enormous spouting creatures of the deep. Soon Hannah sees them herself — and learns what it is like to be marooned at sea, fighting side-by-side with her sister to survive a storm that threatens to drown them all....
