THE GOLDEN AGE OF SAIL HAS RETURNED -- IN THE YEAR 2351
When his mother dies in a flitter crash, eighteen-year-old Ishmael Horatio Wang must find a job with the planet company or leave the system--and NerisCo isn't hiring. With credits running low, and prospects limited, he has just one hope...to enlist for two years with a deep space commercial freighter. Ishmael, who only rarely visited the Neris Orbital, and has never been off-planet alone before, finds himself part of an eclectic crew sailing a deep space leviathan between the stars.
Join the crew of the SC Lois McKendrick, a Manchester built clipper as she sets solar sails in search of profit for her company and a crew each entitled to a share equal to their rating.
Excellent Book. It was very well written and I loved reading such a simple, classic type of story. There was no angst, vampires, werewolves, love triangles etc.
It was a classic, simple story of a young man making his way in the world. Set in the future of course, but the world building was good. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
