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.
Dona fights for her life and her lover in the face of Rockingham's jealous rage and struggles to bridge the impossible gulf that divides her and the captured Frenchman.
