The Seas of Fortune(1983)
(The first book in the Anderson Line series)
A novel by Simon McKay (Christopher Nicole)
He was a Yankee, a shipbuilder, a daredevil sea captain ... and a married man. She was a tempestuous Charleston belle...
From the moment their eyes first met they were both lost, though only she knew it then.
When Edward Anderson next meets Penelope Meigs, it is on the hazardous maiden voyage of his celebrated new transatlantic steamship.
Their passion is forbidden by every law of God and man, but not to be denied ...
Then tragedy strikes, and they pay for every sweet moment with a long shadow of guilt that darkens their lives and tears them apart.
Penelope gives herself to another.
Edward finds fame and fortune, but never love ... until he returns to the South as the Confederacy's boldest blockade-runner; determined to find Penelope and silence forever the foe who has dared claim her for his own...
Seas of Fortune is a gripping story of love, betrayal, and infidelity set on the high seas.
