Born during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1, young Cornishman Roger Kilter leaves his native fishing village and journeys to Plymouth, to join the fleet of Sir Francis Drake. Destined to face the mighty Spanish Armada, Roger's adventures in port and at sea are both amorous and dangerous reflecting the violence and passions of those times. Even more tumultuous for Roger than the seas of war are the currents of love and desire anchored deep in the long-standing bitter feud between two Cornish families. Follow Roger's journey of discovery... Will he be forever seduced by the life of a seafarer and all the temptations of a bustling port? Can he resist the abundant charms of the lusty but capricious Bess? Can he survive the thrilling battle with the Spanish Armada aboard The Revenge? Or, will he return home to Cornwall and the lovely Bridget, spurned and forsaken?
In a memorial presented in 1835 to the Lords of the Admiralty, the author of the journals which form this volume details his various services. He joined the Navy in October, 1793, his first ship being H.M.S. Blonde. He was present at the siege of Martinique in 1794, and returned to England the same year in H.M.S. Hannibal with despatches and the colours of Martinique. For a few months the ship was attached to the Channel Fleet, and then suddenly, in 1795, was ordered to the West Indies again. Here he remained until 1802, during which period he was twice attacked by yellow fever.
