As the son of an officer, Jacques was expected to pursue a career in the military. In the spring of 1744, at the age of fifteen, Jacques and his father leave France for Louisbourg, the French capital of Īle Royale, where Jacques is to learn the military arts - a far cry from his books and music and the comforts of his mother's home. In the Acadian forests that surround the French fortress of Louisbourg, a young Mi'kmaw man named Two-feathers watches the strange comings and goings of soldiers and citizens. Two-feathers is hoping to find his father who, he has been told, is an important man among the French - they have never met. From his discreet camp outside the walls of the fortress, Two-feathers watches, believing that he will know his father when he sees him. At night, he moves silently about the city, including the Governor's apartments, where he befriends a beautiful young French woman. Jacques' life in Louisbourg is a curious mixture of military duties and his visits to the Governor's apartments where he teaches the daughter of a visiting merchant to play the violoncello. The two young men follow very different paths - one formally educated and refined, the other curious and skilful - both seeking to understand their father. Their paths and their worlds collide during the violent siege by British forces in 1745.

About the Author:

Philip Roy lives in Ontario with his family. Whenever possible, he visits the places he writes about in the SUBMARINE OUTLAW series. From 1999 to 2001, he lived on the island of Saipan, which features in GHOSTS OF THE PACIFIC. Recently, he travelled to India to research the fifth book in the series, OUTLAW IN INDIA, and to South Africa for book six, SEAS OF SOUTH AFRICA. Book seven, ECO WARRIOR, is set in Australia, which he has also recently visited. The eighth book in the SUBMARINE OUTLAW series, STEALTH OF THE NINJA, will be set in Japan, and is due out in the fall of 2016. Travelling makes for great adventure, Philip contends. The only thing better is writing about it and visiting schools to share the stories and research with young readers. Along with the SUBMARINE OUTLAW series, Philip is also the author of two children's/YA historical novels, Blood Brothers in Louisbourg and Me & Mr. Bell. He has also recently published MOUSE TALES, JELLYBEAN MOUSE,  and MOUSE PET, his first three children's picture books in the HAPPY THE POCKET MOUSE series. The fourth book in the HAPPY THE POCKET MOUSE series will be published in the fall of 2016.
