Book Description

Penelope?or Penny to those dear to her?married Percy Eduardo, a Brazilian of German descent, in Brazil. Since no relative of hers in the United Kingdom was able to attend her wedding, she decided to take Percy to the country so he could meet her loved ones in England and Scotland. In Blackburn, England, Percy met and talked to Captain Walter, Penny's grandfather, a hero of two world wars and a shipwreck rescue mission. As Percy related that he grew up in an Italian household, Captain Walter took his bronze statue, a token of thanks from an Italian colony for saving the passengers of a ship called Principessa Mafalda that capsized near the northern coast of Brazil. Percy then recalled a story narrated to him by Generoso, the uncle of Lucio?his stepfather and the father of his younger brother?about a shipwreck he got into, which corroborated the old man's tale.
