They and their girlfriends all attend the Rue St. Paul Middle School funded specifically for the four orphanages of the French Quarter. One day Chris receives his first letter. The letter is from an attorney telling him that, from his late father, he has inherited a ship-the S.S. Eagle's Rook. The letter goes on to tell him the crew will be leaving on a mysterious voyage on June 26 at 8:00 p.m. Chris and his friends embark on a voyage that will forever change the course of the rest of their lives. They encounter a hurricane, experience an attempted takeover of the Eagle's Rook, and discover a treasure that only Chris could appreciate.Lawson, Marie Nadeau is the author of 'Eagle's Rook and Robillard's Treasure', published 2006 under ISBN 9781424105052 and ISBN 1424105056.
