Published by Xlibris
St. Elmo's Fire is a maritime phenomenon where natural electrical discharge, primarily from lightning, causes a ship's mast to glow. Its aura can be seen for miles and it has been believed to be either an evil omen or a sign of protection and good luck at sea.
Beginning in the Port of New York in fall, 1834, "St. Elmo's Fire" is a fast-paced story of adventure and misadventure. Twenty year-old Donecha Van Fossen, bookish son of Irish-Dutch immigrants, manages to escape their dreary life and follow his dream of becoming a seaman. He is taken aboard the sailing ship "Il Paradiso" as tutor to the captain's eleven year-old son, who has been held captive at sea for most of his young life. Finding out why and by whom is the central mystery.
The rescue effort involves intrigues, pursuits, betrayals, as well as merriment and a touch of romance, In he end 'Il Paradiso succeeds where "Il Purgatorio" and " Il Inferno" have failed.
Numerous character and plot shifts draw the reader to a surprising conclusion.
