""I am so pleased to have written my first children's book and to
have my dear friend Wendell Minor illustrate it. I thought it would
be a daunting project, but with six grandchildren and eleven
stepgrandchildren, I've been telling stories to children for a long
time." -- Mary Higgins Clark"
Thomas loved his summer visits to his grandmother's on Cape Cod.
He spent hours wondering about the sailing ships of the past and
imagining their stories. He dreamed of being on a sailing ship
himself. One afternoon after a night of terrible thunderstorms,
Thomas finds, deep in the sand, a weathered, old-fashioned belt
