'A fast-paced tale of danger, adventure and drama ... deeply steeped in historical fact, and with real characters from the past.'

Mark Williams.

Two boys meet on a voyage that transforms their lives.

Madu, a young African, is captured by the English slave-trader, Sir John Hawkins. Tom Oakley is a young sailor in charge of the slaves. At first the two boys hate each other. But when their roles are reversed, and both boys are enslaved, thousands of miles from home, they learn that only by combining their efforts do they have any chance of freedom.
