The MacGregor family encountered certain death many times. The lives of four members of the family were thrown into chaos when the father had a mid-life crisis. He sold their home, most of their personal possessions, and moved the family to a sloop-rigged yacht. The wife was trained by her stepmother as a child. She learned to anticipate needs. She learned obedience in fear of punishment. She became dependent on her husband and gave in to his decisions. Adverse weather conditions, danger from commercial ships, pirates, lack of modern conveniences worked on the family. Escalating incidents unfolded every day. The husband insisted on his own way. The navigational course was aborted when heavy seas and winds crippled the yacht. The captain enforced his demands. His wife, the first mate, feared his tactics. She cherished the safety of her family. The children were five and eight years of age. Join in the adventures aboard Far Horizons.
