Review quote

"A fascinating look at a "lost" adventure of English sea-faring--exotic, savage, and altogether engrossing" -- Diana Gabaldon "A fascinating look at a "lost" adventure of English sea-faring--exotic, savage, and altogether engrossing" -- Diana Gabaldon author of the bestselling Outlander series (Cross Stitch, UK) "Fantastic, really fantastic. Very exciting, and moving, vivid characters, great ending" Richard Lee, founder of the Historical Novel Society "Beautifully written and researched, this tale of desire, revenge, piracy, war and valour is so evocative we can taste salt on our skin and hear the swoop of sails overhead as we're swept up into a high-stakes adventure unlike any we've read before" C.W. Gortner, author of The Confessions of Catherine de Medici "A captivating and well researched tale of love, duty, and the consequences of actions, set against a vividly described New World" -- Editor's Choice Historical Novels Reviewshow more

About Jenny Barden

Jenny Barden has had a love of history and adventure ever since an encounter in infancy with a suit of armour at Tamworth Castle. Training as an artist, followed by a career as a city solicitor, did little to help displace her early dream of becoming a knight. Impelled by a fascination with the Age of Discovery, she has travelled widely in South and Central America, and much of the inspiration for Mistress of the Sea came from retracing the footsteps of Francis Drake in Panama. Jenny has four children and lives in Hertfordshire with her long suffering husband, a loving Labrador and a deadly Bengal cat. More about Jenny can be found at www.jennybarden.comshow more
