Description

High Seas: The Cabin Boy - is a historical romance, disguised as an adventure. What would you be willing to endure to escape an arranged marriage? That's what Margaret Wallingham has to decide. Born to the wealth and privilege of 18th century England, the high spirited, seventeen year old isn't very happy when her parents inform her of the news. After reading an article in the newspaper, Margaret enlists the aid of three friends to help her escape her fate. But which would be worse? A marriage to Nathanial Braxton? Or taking on the disguising of a boy and hiring on a ship as crew? This is the story of a young woman's desire for independence; her struggle with everyday life among the working class, and her search for the life and love she wants on her terms. Follow Margaret's adventure from the British Isle to India as The Cabin Boy.
