Mrs Finnegan and her seven children have to leave Ireland and join Mr Finnegan in Australia. They board a ship which doesn't look as if it can move from the harbour and the Finnegans are nervous . . . it is the year after the Titanic sank, after all.
Mrs Finnegan is busy saving the ship from whales and other possible disasters. But as they sail around the tip of Africa, an iceberg looms out of the ocean. Can the Finnegans save the ship this time . . .
'How The Finnegans Saved The Ship' is a warm and humorous story of one Irish family's migration to Australia in 1913. The Finnegan children are confident and prepared to sail around the world, but there are adventures that can shake anyone's faith.

Doesn't tell what happens after the storm. It's alright but there's better books. I give it 5/10. Which is alright.
