To See The World

All his life José has seen the tall ships sailing in, from around the world, to Port Louis on the island of Mauritius, where he was born. As he watches them leave again, disappearing below the horizon, he dreams of going with them – of sailing away, one day, to see the world. But when the young and beautiful Rose de Freycinet arrives on board the Uranie in 1818 José’s life is changed in ways that he has never imagined.
