Book Synopsis:

BARKER-MARKEY: A NAME THAT ECHOED DOWN THE BUSTLING COAST OF THE COLONIES...
for their ships had no equal for grace and innovation. Little did rivals suspect the shocking secret--that these peerless vessels were designed by a woman!

Yet Eliza Barker-Markey 's sure hand was to sketch plans for the ship that would alter the course of merchant seafaring--and bring acclaim to the long-struggling family shipyard. With her husband, Jonathan, Eliza scaled the pinnacles of fortune--until the rude winds of tragedy suddenly dashed their dream. And their son, Geoffrey Markey--still so young and vulnerable--was left all alone to rescue their vision... and his heritage.

Here is the story of three generations whose courage conquered a thunderous century, when a brazen colonial rebellion stunned the world and a proud little country struggled into being. Here is the saga of a family, poised on the riotous brink of history--facing enmity, ruin, war, and death--yet carving their place through the fateful decades with a spirit of faith and triumph.
