Bratach na gCnámh 3: Oileán na Siorcanna
Louise Bheag and Benjamin are captured by the English Navy and held in a cell in Kingston in the island of Jamaica. They are helped to escape by the pirates, Parabas and Marie Dhearg, and try to leave Jamaica to go in search of their father. But they’re not the only ones who are looking for him!

France, the year 1660. After the death of their mother, Louise Bheag and Benjamin are sent to an orphanage in Paris. Louise Bheag is an unruly girl; she prefers the sword to the darning needle. And Benjamin is no soldier; he prefers books and sea charts. Together, they decide to run away from the orphanage and to go to sea in search of their father – knowing only that he is the captain of a ship away at sea
