Michael would have been content living out his days in the peacefulness of his quiet mountain hamlet. The complexity of urban living and the activities of sinister criminals, never reached their sleepy village. This would all change when an evil family, lacking a moral compass, would challenge their peaceful way of life. Eighteenth century Georgian, England, was a dangerous spider's web of complex relationships, diverse communities, and compelling business interests.
Confronted by the maliciousness of the wicked, Michael's sense of morality would serve as the battleground for his growth as a man.
Michael, the confident musician, would find himself thrust out upon the turbulence of a more challenging life by two things: the cancer of criminal intrigue and the consolation of tender romance. He would explore what it would mean to share a deep relationship. He would learn that love is so much more than romance.
For Michael, much like a ship, greatness wouldn't be discovered until it had weathered perilous storms and survived desperate battles....
