This book is inspired by the true events of the final voyage of the vessel “Queen of Swansea” that was headed for Newfoundland back in 1867 and encountered a gruesome ending on the rocks of Gull Island.
This is a story that is both inspiring and eye opening. While we hear of loss of life at sea over the years, it was amazing (and heartbreaking) to realize how close these people were to land and yet, tragically, still starved to death on a desolate rock. Desperation: The Queen of Swansea is a must read.
