The first of a series that leads you through the love and horrors of a Havre de Grace waterman... a world travelled sailor and a ship captain starting a family and business in 19th century Maryland. Intriguing detail and glimpses of historical detail...
to a lost infant daughter Ben never knew. Their home is gone, swept away by the Susquehanna ice. Sonja is near destitute and working as a house servant; she is emotionally numb and filled with resentment at Ben's resurrection. Ben is a stranger to his sons and an intruder to his wife. His desire to become a part of their lives again and rebuild a family that has adjusted without him is a challenge he is determined to face. With the help of former shipmates, Ben builds a business on the canal that crosses from the mouth of the Susquehanna River over the Mason and Dixon Line into Pennsylvania. He can no longer ignore crossing the Line, from slave state to free, even at the peril of his rediscovered life. Through it all he is haunted by bloody dreams as he fights to contain the brutal beast he became in China. Pulaski's Canal is a remarkably engaging story about a man torn by love and murderous rage as he struggles to rebuild his life in the little town at the head of the Chesapeake Bay.
