So when her marriage to a prosperous sea captain is arranged, she embraces the damp salt air, cramped conditions and bad food. She sets sail on the Isabella, away from the land of her childhood towards unseen places and an unknown future. But being the captains wife is going to be harder than she thought. Her husband is still grieving for his first wife, and Mary cant ignore her feelings towards another man onboard. Through him, she has a taste of the kind of love she might have known, and even begins to think that escape is possible. With ruthless pirates patrolling British waters and ports full of outcasts with unspoken pasts, Mary learns quickly that loyalties are always shifting and people are rarely as they first seem. The Captains Wife is a richly realised story of adventure about a strong young woman determined to survive her fate by a wonderful storyteller.
