The Watchers On The Longships
Publisher: Crimond House Publications
When deprived of the influence of a godly wife and mother, Owen Tresilian and his family seek to continue the simple, God-fearing life they had always known. When Arthur Pendrean, a faithful young parson, arrives along with the first wave of Wesleyan revival, this stirs up the opposition of the murderous smugglers and wreckers, and indeed of Arthur's own family. They arrange to have Philip press-ganged into naval service and kidnap Owen, leaving little Mary to man the Longships Lighthouse by herself. This is the story of the first ever lighthouse at Land's End, and brings in the press-gang, Lord Howe's 'glorious first of June', the beginnings of Wesleyan Methodism in Cornwall, and all the excitement of seafaring life in dangerous times.
