Sea Captain from Salem

It is 1777 and the American War for Independence is at an impasse. The struggling new nation’s need for help sends Benjamin Franklin to Paris to seek an alliance with France. How can he convince the French that the American battle is worth joining?

The surprising answer to his dilemma appears in the unlikely and unforgettable form of a fisherman named Peace of God Manly. Franklin puts Peace of God in command of the sloop of war The Hornet with orders to harass British ships in their own waters.

Soon tales of the unique and daring exploits of this devout but fiery sea captain from Salem are buzzing in the government halls of both France and Britain.

Note: While this book is Christian in content, you will likely wish to use white out on p. 90 for a word used to describe the captain in a negative way.
