Set in the early nineteenth century, Rough Passage to London follows Eli, a young farm boy who escapes his troublesome home in Connecticut and becomes a cabin boy on a square-rigged ship headed for London . . . a route he hopes will lead to his disappeared older brother. As Eli learns the trade of a sailor and follows a cryptic clue to his brother’s whereabouts, he experiences romance, faces a mutiny, meets Queen Victoria, and befriends historical legends such as Charles Dickens in his raucous quest.


  • A tale of a sea captain

    By Jcupak
    A moving story of a young man who leaves home for the sea and rises through hard work to become one of the best known captains of sail. My only objection was the need to stop and research nautical sail term. Endnotes would have helped. Otherwise, a thoroughly engaging novel.
