Hardcover. 203 pp. with brief bibliography. Illustrated with photos. A shipwreck, an anchor, and a baby. What do they all have in common? Author Bradshaw found a piece of red tile tossing around in the surf off Long Beach Island, New Jersey; the discovery led her to the story of the 1910 wreck of the "Fortuna" in a violent storm off LBI. The heroic efforts of the U.S. Lifesaving Service rescued all the passengers (including a newborn baby) but the ship herself could not be saved. 73 years lated, Bradshaw tripped over the anchor left behind by salvagers but the story did not end there---she determined to find the baby who has been on board.
