About: In this historical novel, the Atlantic coast is the scene of feuds between Catholic Marylanders and Protestant Virginians. Here, fog causes a collision between a large vessel and a small one carrying colonists trying to spirit an accused Virginian from Maryland back home to escape a trial. His sister panics when he is swept overboard.
