In a wondrous tale of time travel, adventure, and riches, twelve-year-old Nick McIver sets out to become “the hero of his own life”. Nick and his younger sister, Kate, travel through time to rescue British soldiers from the mutinous Captain Billy Blood in 1805 and back to 1939 to aid their father who is engaged in a desperate war of espionage with German U-boats.
