After losing her advertising job in San Francisco and canceling her wedding (though not her engagement) an unencumbered Melissa, who harbors grand illusions about life in England, heads off to a new job as au pair to the family of a Member of Parliament. But the minorly aristocratic Haig-Ereildouns’ household falls far short of Melissa’s imaginings. Mrs. Haig-Ereildoun refers to Melissa as "her American girl" with a mixture of pride and contempt, expects her to share the children’s bathwater and, most importantly, entreats Melissa to " try to speak as we do." Heaven forbid the children pick up an American accent! But then there is Nanny, the gloriously eccentric octogenarian who raised Mrs. H-E, who offers comfort, and much comic relief; nine-year-old Trevor, Melissa’s charge, whose wisdom and companionship redeem many a lonely day; and her budding friendship with a mysterious Englishman who is miles from her fiancé in every way. Melissa converses with Scotish fishermen, breakfasts with a French Minister of Culture, frequents island castles and sixteenth century manor houses, all the while straddling her ill-defined role (somewhere between houseguest and servant) with humor and grace. Melissa’s immersion in this unforgettable world teaches her more than she could possibly have imagined not only about the culture she has come to inhabit but, most importantly, about herself.

The story begins in the year 1819 when Nathaniel Coffin turns sixteen years, shortly after the tragic deaths of his parents and nine-year-old sister Christiana. Life became even more difficult after he was adopted by an alcoholic aunt named May Nickerson. Coincidentally, it was also the height of the sperm whale industry. His childhood wish to work on a whaling ship became all-consuming. Conflict soon arose after just six weeks at seathe result of a senseless harpoon strike that took the life of Nathans close friend and shipmate, Billy McGiven. Ostracized by his captain and crew, the offender, Duncan Albury, was set ashore. Ruthless and mean-spirited by nature, Albury found another ship, became its pirate captain, and orchestrated his revenge, which culminated on a secluded beach in Port Royal, Jamaica, setting the stage for a bloody and poignant battle. The odds are thirty to two. Do Nathan and Blackjack survive?

Beatrice Thomson doesn't mind her funny nickname. It makes her feel special, which is important when you're the middle child: not the smartest, or the best-looking, or a boy. The Depression years are hard ones, with her father out of work and the family struggling to make ends meet. But irrepressible Booky, with her big imagination and even bigger plans, can tackle anything. A sharp-eyed kid can find plenty to see and do without spending a cent. Even if it does get her into scrapes!
