Wanted: Epic Adventure
While searching for the “7 Wonders of Mystic” with her hound, author Lisa Saunders uncovers the secrets behind Titanic’s shoes, Amelia Earhart’s wedding, and Captain Sisson’s hunt for gold. But will she ever find an adventure of her own? One that will make her thin and famous? Then it happens--a blind sailor invites her on a long winter voyage. Can this landlubber defy squalls, scurvy, and her fear of scraping barnacles to survive this epic journey?
