Publisher's Summary

Bored and restless in London's Restoration Court, Lady Dona escapes into the British countryside with her restlessness and thirst for adventure as her only guides.
Eventually Dona lands in remote Navron, looking for peace of mind in its solitary woods and hidden creeks. She finds the passion her spirit craves in the love of a daring French pirate who is being hunted by all of Cornwall.
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.

outstanding performance. Clear, perfect

Voice inflection and accents, genders, local dialects are perfect. It was
like watching a movie in my head. Best reading I have heard.

A Romantic Adventure

Great period romance from one of my favorite authors. The detail and poetry of the writing along with the measured performance of the narrator create a story which you can't help but visualize and which leaves me feeling as though I had watched a movie rather than listened to a book.
