9780892724253: The Lively Lady

Young Captain Richard Nason of Arundel, Maine, is the successful commander of his family's brig, which carries cargo to and from ports all over the world. Hence, he has no use for the talk of war with England -- until he is kidnapped by a press gang and forced to serve aboard a British warship. He escapes to take revenge on his abusive captors as skipper of the privateer Lively Lady, a sloop that he names after the young, pretty, vivacious wife of dour, bigoted English nobleman Arthur Ransome, whom Nason encountered in Maine before going to war. Due to a twist of fate, Nason and his crew are captured and taken to England's infamous Dartmoor Prison, where the American suffers hardships that last even beyond the end of the war. On a vibrant background of sailing ships and hand-to-hand combat, Roberts uses more subtle brushstrokes to portray extraordinary courage n the face of despair, unlikely friendships that endure the worst of circumstances, and unspoken love that stands the test of time.
