In 1863, three mariners from Massachusetts, following different paths in the War, are captured and sent to the harshest Confederate prison camp, Purgatory Island, located off the coast of Sourth Carolina.

Living conditions in the camp are abhorrent. If the men dont escape, they will be dead in less than a year. Yet, no prisoner has ever made it off the island alive. The runaways either die in the stong currents around the island, or are captured and executed on the spot.The three mariners are Major John Langsford, a former second mate on a Gloucester fishing schooner, and now a surgeon in the Union Army- Navy Lieutenant Samuel Benedict, the captain of a West Coast lumber schooner who becomes a gunnery officer on an ironclad war ship- and finally Sergeant Major Eli Daniels, a black man from Nantucket, and a master harpooner on whale ships, who joins the all-colored, Massachusetts 54th Volunteer Infantry Regiment.Triing to survive Purgatory Island is the most extreme challenge the men have ever faced.

And the treacherous sea is thier only way out.
