Set in the Isles of Scilly, Ireland and the US, Hell Bay is a big, brawling novel, played out on land and sea in the early years of the nineteenth century. Sam Llewellyn, the author, was born on Scilly and researched their history deeply for the writing of this book. For many years it was available only on the islands, where it was distributed by small boat and has sold 100,000 copies. Now the book returns to the mainland by popular demand. Essential reading for lovers of Scilly and Llewellyn enthusiasts.
