Trustee from the Toolroom by Nevil Shute

Trustee from the Toolroom - Nevil Shute

One of my all-time favorite books and my second-favorite of all Nevil Shute novels.

 

A quiet, innocent and unworldy man, good with his hands, helps out his brother-in-law just before his sister and her husband sails off around thwe world in a small yacht, leaving her daughter in his care. When the ship is destroyed in a monsoon, he must find a way to travel halfway around the world to rescue the young girl's hidden legacy--without telling anyone anything about why he must make the trip.
