Description

After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston - under dire circumstances, of course - Jacky Faber boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don't go as planned, and soon Jacky is off on a wild misadventure at sea. She thwarts the lecherous advances of a crazy captain, rallies sailors to her side, and ultimately gains command of a ship in His Majesty's Royal Navy. But, Jacky's adventures don't end there...This title includes a teaser to Jacky's next adventure, "In the Belly of the Bloodhound".
