Publisher Comments:

LIVING CENTURIES APART, BUT JOINED IN AN EPIC BATTLE. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Sam Robbins is a farm boy, kidnapped to serve on HMS Victory, the ship on which Lord Nelson will die a hero's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Molly Jennings is a twenty-first-century English girl transplanted to the United States by her stepfather's job, who's fighting her own battle against loss and loneliness. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Two lives that couldn't be more different, two hundred years apart, are linked by a tiny scrap of fraying cloth, tucked into an old book. It draws Molly into Sam's world, to a moment in time that changed history — a frightening shared moment that holds the key to secrets from the past and hope for the future.

Synopsis:

A Newbery Medalist delivers an enthralling family saga in which two children cross an ocean 200 hundred years apart: Sam in 1805, and Molly in 2005. Separate yet together, Sam and Molly struggle through fear and excitement to a final ordeal that terrifyingly tests their courage.
