About this book
Sarah Waters meets Carol Birch in a breathtaking historical novel of love, adventure, and identity--with a shocking twist.
Set in 1740, this is a story of love, adventure and identity, on the seas. With appeal to fans of "Fingersmith, The Observations" and "Jamrach's Menagerie", it follows a young dairymaid and a new recruit of the Navy in Essex and on the ocean. Worsley was mentored by Sarah Waters at City University London.
