The Pirate and the Child

ByPeter Rogerson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Pirate and the Child brings the story of the Jewels of Ooombis through the Dark Ages and up to the Middle ages, and an equivalent time for an obscure tribe of peace-loving Native Americans. Its sub-text is the triumph of Innocence over Guilt in all things to do with human endeavours. It starts with a pirate who makes a poor living on the underside of life until he discovers both of the jewels of Ooombis in a cavity on a beach not far from Mount Vesuvius. On a journey that takes him from there to the Americas via the Vikings he meets a strange assortment of people. Eventually on American shores he meets a peaceful Native tribe and settles down to live with them, changing his life-style to match that of his hosts. Meanwhile the brooch is in the hands of Claudette whose life becomes altered by a suggestion left in the gemstone by Henna, a previous owner. Upon arrival on the shores of Britain she is attacked and blinded, and from then on develops a strange pseudo-Christian religion.
