Read full description of the books Hurricane: Open Seas, 1844:Rebecca Whittier's father is the captain of the Vigilance, a whaling ship that sails all over the world in hunt of whales. On this particular voyage, Rebecca, her mother, and her younger brother, Joseph, have accompanied Captain Whittier. Eleven-year-old Joseph enjoys the voyage, but for thirteen-year-old Rebecca, it's been four long years of loneliness and boredom. She misses her friends in New Bedford and longs for the voyage to end. John Lowe, who is about Rebecca's age, was indentured by his father to work on the ship. The living quarters are dirty and cramped, and the work difficult. He, too, wishes the voyage to end so he can be back home. When the Vigilance is trapped in a hurricane and may sink, Rebecca and John find their lives in peril. They must help each other survive and save the ship.
This book was one of my favorites from the Survival! series which I really enjoyed when I was younger. An excellent series full of history and adventure.
