Part adventure, part romance, and set in Cornwall, Daphne Du Maurier's novel tells the powerful love story between Lady Dona and the French pirate Aubery.
Lady Dona trades her skirts for the trousers of a cabin boy and sets sail with the Frenchman and his crew, in a daring bid to steal a merchant ship from under the noses of her compatriots.
