Overview

Five-star book adventures in the mid-1700s begin now.

"...no mustache-twirling villains or simpering damsels in distress, no, these are real people, with real personalities and motivations."--GoodReads

In late summer 1742, shipwright Abraham Robinson leaves London to work at France's great shipyard in Brest where his life changes dramatically. There he falls in love with Yvette, only to lose both his position and lover as war begins. Returning to England, the navy presses him to serve as a ship's carpenter, tearing him from his plans. Great sea battles, dangerous escapes, and ravaging fires challenge Abraham and Yvette's lives from London to the colonies of North America. Throughout, historical and fictional characters cross their paths to help and hinder, but not all survive to achieve their goals in this first book of the Tween Sea and Shore Series.

A free PDF Addendum to the book can be downloaded at: https://stockmanbooks/downloads that contains a character list, nautical glossary, ship diagrams, maps, and other information to make reading the book more enjoyable.

About the Author

David served overseas as a translator for top secret Russian communications for the U.S. Air Force. After he graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a degree in art, David turned to painting and the graphic arts. In and near Chicago, this profession carried him from publication printing of periodicals such as National Geographic and Playboy magazines, to book publishing for imprints of Simon & Schuster, Harcourt Brace & Co., and Pearson Education, and eventually to writing, first articles for an e-magazine and trade journals, and then novels.
