Back Cover:

Eleven-year-old Evan Bryant doesn’t have a lot of excitement in his life. There’s a bully at school who shoves him and takes his lunch. And because of his foot, sports are difficult. What he’d love to do is go fishing, but his father is too busy working.

Everything changes when a letter from Evan’s grandfather arrives. Tom Pentreath is an old sailor whose adventures have taken him to every corner of the globe. He abandoned Evan’s mother when she was only three years old and has been presumed dead for thirty years.

Now he’s back, and he wants tobe part of Evan’s family. But he is also hiding a terrible secret. Can Evan and his mother find the courage to forgive the past ... and stand by the father figure they’ve come to love?
