The Restoration Court knows Lady Dona St Columb to be ripe for any folly, any outrage that will alter the tedium of her days. But there is another, secret Dona who longs for freedom, honest love - and sweetness, even if it is spiced with danger.

To escape the shallowness of court life, Dona retreats to Navron, her husband's remote Cornish estate. There, she seeks peace in its solitary woods and hidden creeks. But she finds instead a daring pirate, hunted by all Cornwall, a Frenchman who, like Dona, would gamble his life for a moment's joy. 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.

Review:

A tale of danger, passion and mystery, and a compulsive slice of period drama. (Good Book Guide)

A pure, exhilarating adventure story - a swashbuckling tale of exquisite danger and tangled love . . . a tale of emotional and sexual awakening, of loss and risk . . . sophisticated in its exploration of the human heart. (Julie Myerson)

A heroine who is bound to make thousands of friends (Sunday Times)

One of the last century's most original literary talents (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

One of du Maurier's most popular novels, Frenchman's Creek is a tale of adventure, set during the reign of Charles II. It is the breathtaking story of a woman searching for love, who embraces the dangerous life of a fugitive on the seas.
