This exciting story of young Corrie Harriman falling in love for the first time while serving on His Britannic Majesty's ship Swift is based on recent historical research which shows that large numbers of brave women joined the Royal Navy during England's struggle with Napoleon. These women were not allowed to say they were women, and many had to adopt male names and dress as men in order to draw their pay. But they wanted to fight, and fight they did, and perhaps it is time that the part they played in the war was acknowledged.
This is the second volume of The Harriman Adventures. The first volume, dealing with Corrie's entry in the navy and her subsequent promotion, was published recently and titled 'Midshipman Harriman.' A third volume 'Captain Harriman' is in preparation.
