Returning from the wars in Restoration Europe, Christopher Morgan looks to rebuild his life in England and escape the memory of his recently deceased wife – although looking into the eyes of his young son, Abel, Christopher cannot help but be reminded of what he has lost. Over time, father and son develop a strong bond as Christopher establishes community ties in the West Country, having bought a pub and inherited the previous owner’s employees. However this relationship is callously torn apart when Abel is snatched by local ruffians and sold overseas. From the eastern shores of Constantinople to the western American isles, time and tide divide the two, and Christopher will sail far and wide to search for his missing son.
