Luc works hard, even though he’s just a boy. His father is constantly complaining about him and finding more and more work for him to do. He never has enough to eat. When a local fisherman named Pons wants to take him on as an apprentice the offer includes living with the fisherman and his sister in the village. Luc can’t believe it when his father lets him go.
Luc feels like his luck has suddenly turned…until the day Pons’ boat is overtaken by pirates and Luc is taken captive and sold into slavery. Even though Luc in enslaved in a nice house and is well fed and going to school, he is still a slave. All he wants to do is go home to Pons. All Pons, wants is to find him. This is the story of one boy, his changing fortunes and the people who love him. You might be surprised by some of the people who turn out to care.
