A cursed pirate, a vengeful sea sorceress, a forbidden diamond, and a daring midnight raid. But will the boy who is deathly afraid of water be able to save the day?
After the tragic death of his mother, eleven-year-old Finn Dooley finds himself labelled an orphan and is unceremoniously shipped off to Cadgwith Cove in Cornwall to live with his Aunt Beatrix.
Terrified of the ocean and despised by his persnickety aunt, Finn is having a dreadful summer, especially when he becomes a target for the local village bullies.
But a chance encounter, one dark and stormy night, with a cursed pirate who has been forced to live in secret for centuries now in the caves of Cadgwith Cove, changes the young boy’s life forever.
With the old pirates help, Finn is finally able to overcome his fear of water. But will he ever be able to repay Jacob Barlow for his kindness and help free the last pirate from the ancient curse holding him prisoner?
Join Finn and Jacob on the summer adventure of a lifetime in this powerful story of loss, bravery, and the ever-lasting bonds of true friendship.
