This adventure is primarily about the life of Captain Joseph Worthy who sails a unique warship called the Avenger. The tale tells of his training on that warship while under the watchful eye of his father Captain Alexander Worthy. It tells of the many skills he has to acquire to become accredited by the English Navy as a Seaman First Class.
Joseph’s father Captain Alexander Worthy and his father Captain Eric Worthy were all famous for their victories at sea against Spain and privateers. You will discover how Joseph Worthy will become a Captain of the Avenger. You will read about his meeting an Irish girl called Annabelle and her Irish family.
Joseph’s father, Captain Alexander Worthy, patrolled the waters in the Irish Sea and part of the English Channel, where first he, and now we, have commandeered ships while patrolling the Irish Sea and part of the Southern English Channel. Since Captains received a portion of the treasure from each captured ship, his father had acquired a small fortune.
Things really began to happen when Joseph Worthy takes his ship on his own time to Ireland. Why he goes there and what happens when he goes there really sets the story in motion. You will see how he eventually becomes a real power not be reckoned with.
The final moving of the O’Hara family to Cuba is integral to the story. It is also how he uses his fortune to cause Havana to grow into a busy trading port. His help in getting Havana businesses started caused him to be loved in Cuba as you will read in the end of the story.
The pinnacle of the story is when and how he changes Cuba to a country with a President rather than an island ruled by Spain.
