Waif of the Cynthia

The Scandinavian setting of this novel was unusual and quite refreshing. The plot revolved around a dark haired boy called Erik in a family of blond Norwegians, who turns out to have been discovered as a baby tied to a ship's buoy. The plot concerns Erik's of his efforts to chase round the world trying to track down a sailor who supposedly knows the secret of his abandonment. He turns out to be the son of a French industrialist. 4/5 ( )
