About the Book

England and France were hovering on the brink of war... and Oliver Westland's wife had been kidnapped by the enemy. It is the year 1803 and for the time being there is uneasy peace between England and France, but for Captain Oliver Westland, home on leave from the Navy, life has turned sour. The girl he has been expecting to marry (Admiral's daughter Sarah Craythorne) has run away to India with a captain of Dragoons, and Oliver's pride is damaged. On the re-bound he suggests that Sarah's sister Letty shall become his wife instead, and having been in love with him for months Letty agrees, but immediately after the ceremony Oliver receives an order to sail for Antigua, and it is not until a year later that Letty is summoned to join him. Just as she sets sail war breaks out again, and halfway across the Atlantic she finds herself being carried aboard a French man o'war. The French captain, Armand d'Anviers, is very different from her husband, and as they travel south she finds herself falling in love for a second time. The story moves from a small, uncharted Atlantic island to the social whirlpool of Antigua, then back to an England preparing for invasion.

Torn in different directions, Letty is tormented; and as the story moves towards its end the two men in her life find themselves facing destiny under the guns of Trafalgar....
