Set in the 1750’s ‘Lost to the Sea’ is the first in a series of sea stories charting the life of James Johnson; the son of a fisherman. Orphaned at twelve when his entire family are drowned, he is taken in and educated by the church. A year later, he is apprenticed to a local shipping master sent to sea on a collier brig.
He rises quickly and soon becomes senior Apprentice, but he falls foul of Thomas Brolin, the owner’s nephew who has designs on the family fortune and sees him as a rival for the owner’s daughter. Annabel.
Brolin hires a highwayman to murder James, but the man sees more profit in selling him to the Press-gang.
We follow his trials, tribulations and triumphs as he struggles to cope with the harsh life ‘before the mast’ on a merchant brig, and later after being taken by the press gang, ‘below decks’ on a sloop of war.
