Highly personalized adventure, ultra-romantic mood, and skillful storytelling. New York Times

DAPHNE DU MAURIER'S LOST CLASSIC; AN ELECTRIFYING TALE OF LOVE AND SCANDAL ON THE HIGH SEAS.

Jaded by the numbing politeness of Restoration London, Lady Dona St. Columb revolts against high society. She rides into the countryside, guided only by her restlessness and her longing to escape.

But when chance leads her to meet a French pirate, hidden within Cornwall's shadowy forests, Dona discovers that her passions and thirst for adventure have never been more aroused. Together, they embark upon a quest rife with danger and glory, one which bestows upon Dona the ultimate choice: sacrifice her lover to certain death or risk her own life to save him.

Frenchman's Creek is the breathtaking story of a woman searching for love and adventure who embraces the dangerous life of a fugitive on the seas.

Synopsis:

The Restoration Court knows Lady Dona St Columb to be ripe for any folly, anything to alter the tedium of her days. But there is another Dona who longs for a life of honest love - even if it is spiced with danger. It is this Dona who flees London for remote Navron, finding there a hunted pirate.

A delightful book. The heroine is a character to love--brave, strong, audacious and depthful. Readers will not be disappointed. As always, du Maurier brings her gift of writing to deepen the reading experience and manages to add complexity to the characters making them relateable and loveable. This book has all the elements of a great read--excitement, adventure, danger, romance, and pure entertainment.
