In 1830, Thomas Bartholomew Cantfield is shipwrecked on a small uncharted island in the South Pacific. Alone and fearing that he may never be rescued, Thomas begins journalizing his time marooned on the island.
Experiencing devastating loneliness, ferocious pirate attacks, and the unexpected appearance of other people, he begins to question the very foundation of his sanity. With the arrival of a seemingly magical bird, he comes to suspect that the island is a wondrous and miraculous place that exists solely to take care of him.
His incredible story unfolds to tell a tale of adventure, mystery, and survival — and of an indomitable will to persevere in the face of his most trying challenge ever.
Join Thomas in the wondrous account of a man determined to be more than he was ever meant to be.
