A Historic Novel of Love, War, and a Renowned Frigate
Caught between Great Britain and France in the mid 1700s, Abraham struggles to pursue his passion for shipbuilding. Kings and captains interrupt his quest for a peaceful life as he encounters and overcomes barriers in two opposed and stratified cultures.
From the streets of old London to the Citadel of Louisbourg and lands between, sea-faring battle action and love’s complexities entwine to create a dramatic story centered on the carpenter and his love, Yvette.
The fastest frigate on the seas links a host of historical characters, with warriors, nobles, shopkeepers, and lovers crossing paths in the wake of la Renommée.
“The Ship’s Carpenter tells a satisfying story that will be welcomed by anyone with a taste for well-researched Historical Fiction.” —Alaric Bond, author of the Fighting Sail Series
