Hannah Ahab entered Grace Seaman’s Mission and walked to all into the large, sunny dining room, where blended smells of bread, bacon, and pipe tobacco greeted them. Several men sat at breakfast served by the mission staff. At the end of the long room, her friend Jeremiah stood talking with another man who, like his host, wore a dark business suit. The tastefully groomed stranger was tall and muscular, with neatly trimmed, sun-bleached blond hair. He was clean-shaven and had the tanned, weathered complexion of a seaman. He appeared to be in his late-thirties, perhaps five years older than his host.

            When Jeremiah saw Hannah, he led the other man to her. As they approached, she felt a rush of panic, despite Jeremiah’s tranquil expression. She knew this man and, far worse, he knew her. It was too late to flee. Soon every sailor and whaler in the room and every seaman in Boston would know her name, her connection to the infamous Captain Ahab.

            “Hannah, here’s an old friend I’m sure you remember.”

            The man took her hand, raised it to his lips, then lifted his gaze to her stricken countenance. “Mrs. . . . Jacobs, how good to see you again. I’ve already become reacquainted with your fine young son.” His broad, handsome face was lit by a guileless smile, and his clear gray eyes exuded kindness and understanding.

Tears stung her eyes as she struggled to regain her composure. “Captain Lazarus, how good to see you again.”
