Set in the last century against a tropical landscape and the ever-present sea, A High Wind in Jamaica tells the story of a family of English children who, on being sent by their parents back to England from Jamaica, fall into the hands of pirates.
As this voyage of innocence continues, the events which unfold begin to take on a savagely detached and haunting quality.
