The Glittering Strand

Serafina Guardi is captured by corsairs and sold into slavery en route to her betrothal.

Thomas Marlowe, an English pilot wrecked on the Barbary coast, longs for a ship and oceans to sail her in. Chance and treachery entangle their fates, but long, hard years will pass before either Serafina or Thomas can realise their dreams – only to discover that the dream is no longer the same…

Reviews

A great escapist read, underpinned with research and construction of great skill.
