Summary
Sarah Waters meets Carol Birch in a breathtaking historical novel of love, adventure, and identity--with a shocking twist
Summary
Louise Fletcher is content with her life as a dairymaid in 1740 Essex -- until her employer, Captain Handley, chooses her to serve as a lady's maid to his daughter Rebecca. Louise's story alternates with that of 15-year-old Luke Fletcher, who finds himself aboard a ship bound for the West Indies after being press-ganged into the Royal Navy. Louise, who falls in love with her mistress, risks her life to save Rebecca when both women fall ill with smallpox, while Luke experiences the many dangers and privations of a life at sea. Despite the very different trajectories of the Fletchers' lives, both intricately plotted narratives unfold in vivid, descriptive language that artfully evokes life in 18th-century England. - Description by Gillian Speace
