“The Wandering Pirate Ship” is a touching story about the children living together at a remote island lighthouse, specifically Lillian Bates, whose adventure and realizations along the way stir the heart of every reader. “The Wandering Pirate Ship” is the creation of published author, Mary I. Schmal, a teacher who enjoys the opportunity of developing her students’ creativity and love for learning.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Mary I. Schmal’s new book is an engrossing work about a young girl who sifts through the clues on a weather-torn shipwreck that could help her, together with the other children, to unravel a mystery on an island—a feat that leads her to an ultimate realization about the lingering hatred in her heart.

Lillian learns through her journey that love is a fruit of the Spirit, and she can serve as a light for other people who are living in darkness. This book reaches out to those who struggle with feelings of hatred and bad intentions in their hearts and a desire to understand what loving truly is.

Mary shares from her book, “Lillian peeked around the corner, survival fixed in her mind. Her survival. Not his. Her eyes glowed with madness caused by burning sibling rivalry. Her father was up in the lantern room, so she and her mother would have to determine how to straighten out Thomas. When it came to disputes among the children, she, Lillian Elisabeth Bates, should be the one in charge, not Thomas. Perhaps her demand could be put into writing. Her mother could record the fate of Thomas in the lighthouse logbook. That would certainly make the necessary Who Is To Be In Charge law a lasting record for now and the future. Certainly, her mother would side with her, the firstborn.”
