The Unfortunate Son is a sprawling adventure set in 16th century France and Tunisia in North Africa. Luc, the hero, was born with one ear, and was rejected by his father. Luc is pawned off on an hateful farmer, and finally apprenticed to a kind fisherman with a lovely daughter. The happiness is short lived when he is kidnapped by pirates and becomes the property of a wealthy Arab. There is also a romantic interest. Fun read!
