A Love of Adventure

A Love of Adventure

(2012)
A novel by

 
Born at sea and raised on shipboard, adventurous young Abigail Sherman wants nothing more than to be wedded to the ocean for life.

But fate conspires against her. Abigail is packed off to Puritanical relatives in New Bedford, Massachusetts, to learn proper womanly decorum. She does her best to conform, despite being involved in controversial events, including the Women's Rights movement, and a sensational murder trial, but news of her father's brutal murder drives her to escape by entering into a marriage of convenience.

Her legacy is the ownership of the brig she grew up on, and a puzzling rhyme that is the clue to a mysterious fortune. But, before she can solve the puzzle and collect her inheritance, Abigail must outwit hostile seamen, a mystery murderer, and her own attractive, obstinate husband.
