1609

A novel based around the landing of Sir George Somers on the Bermudas in 1609, a landing which was really a skillfully manipulated shipwreck of the flagship the Sea 'Venture, part of a convoy of relief vessels, manned in part by convicts and felons, and with passengers planning to settle in Virginia, in a hurricane. Admiral Somers, who knew something of the dread reefs around the Bormudas, drove the damaged vessel between two great rocks, near enough land to rescue his passengers, crew and the relatively undamaged stores.
