Bratach na gCnámh 2: Long na dTaibhsí
Crossing the Atlantic Ocean on board Ordóg na Feirge in search of their father, Louise Bheag and Benjamin begin to learn to become sailors. And they are made to work hard! After they come through a wild storm on the sea, the pair of them find themselves on a ghost ship – with an English ship on their tails!

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.
