The St. Brendan Series (Book 1)
Sailing Master Able Six, Royal Navy, is a man like no other. Someone with his extraordinary gifts should rise to the top, unless it is the 1800s, where pedigree and money govern society. A bastard raised in a Scottish workhouse with nothing in his favor except his amazing mind, Able must find a way to provide for his charming bride Meridee. Able finds himself teaching at St. Brendan the Navigator School, taking boys like Able from workhouses and training them to serve the fleet. Can a sailing master-turned-teacher uncover their potential? Can Meridee find a way to nurture young hearts bruised too soon by life? And what is it about Able Six, the unlikely master genius?
