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. -- Sourcebooks Landmark
Last month, I read and reviewed FRENCHMAN'S CREEK by Daphne du Maurier. I had never read a book by Ms. du Maurier before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it! I highly recommend FRENCHMAN'S CREEK; and it is available for purchase at all major chain bookstores, Amazon.com and through Sourcebooks.As a new fan of du Maurier's, I was excited to learn that today would have been her 102nd birthday. To celebrate Ms. du Maurier's 102nd birthday, Sourcebooks has a surprise for one lucky reader -- a copy of FRENCHMAN'S CREEK!
