Product description

Seventeen-year-old Ann Harvey is one of the great unsung heroes of maritime history. In 1828, off the coast of Newfoundland, Ann Harvey, her father and younger brother, came upon the wreck of the Despatch, an Irish immigrant ship. In thick fog and fierce wind it had run aground. Ann's courage and strength at the oars of the rescue boat were largely responsible for saving more than 160 dirt-poor passengers stranded amid the raging storm.Ann and Seamus brings the remarkable story of Ann Harvey to today's readers. In a poetic and powerful retelling, Kevin Major portrays the shy young woman thrust into extraordinary circumstances. It is the story of dramatic rescue, but it is also the story of dreams and fate, of a hard life and young love. For also at its center is Seamus, a young Irishman who had set sail with hopes of a new life in America. Ann and Seamus is historical ?ction that sweeps across ages and nationalities. In rich yet accessible narrative verse, it draws the reader into the drama of sea rescue without losing the tender and impetuous voices of youth at the core of the story.

Very good condition, some shelf wear on the covers. Dust jacket in good condition with some creases and a small tear at the top edge.
