Synopsis

DRUMMER’S LUCK is based upon actual events that occurred in America’s Revolutionary War at the surrender of Yorktown in 1781 when a young British drummer boy resolutely stood silhouetted on a parapet under fire from Continental riflemen to beat out a call to parley. DRUMMER’S LUCK begins on the grim streets of Edinburgh Scotland where Ossian, an orphaned choirboy of 11 is cruelly pressed into Britain’s Royal Navy to serve as a powder monkey aboard a ship of the line. Born under mysterious circumstances and raised by a secretive mother, Ossian is unaware his unknown father, chieftain of Scotland’s most powerful clan and a lethal duelist, is seeking him. Ossian learns to survive by wits and courage on a man of war that is little more than a floating prison as he begins a dangerous journey that will lead him from the horrors of eighteenth century naval warfare to the battlefields of Cornwallis' campaign in the Carolinas and Virginia. From the dangers of life at sea to the plantations of South Carolina, DRUMMER’S LUCK is the story of one young boy’s frightening discovery of his true identity while seeking a new life for himself in America.
