HMS Valiant 7. Bridgemont

   (2 reviews)

George Granger has been home for six months on parole, anxiously awaiting news that he has been exchanged, hoping that once he is, he can once again return to active duty in the Royal Navy. Now, in May, 1799, his wish is granted.

Before reading this story, consider:
1. It contains graphic descriptions of sex.
2. British money was denominated in either Guineas or Pounds. A Guinea was worth about 25-30 shillings, while a Pound was worth about 20 shillings. If coins are used, the reference is in Guineas, otherwise it is in Pounds. A guinea is worth approximately $300 US dollars in 2014, which means a shilling was worth approximately $10.
3. The characters in this story are fictional with the exception of some well-known historical figures. The involvement of those characters is fictional.
4. The story is written with modern day language, as opposed to that used in 18th century England.

This is aNother really good episode in the long naval saga.  Exchanging naval battles ofor struggles onshore, this adds a nice twist and allows the author todevelop some characters even more.  5. ***** read.  But read the series in order. You won't regret it.

Truly an amazing story! I enjoy the historical fiction that Mark has created. Starting from the first book you are able to see George (main character) transform through the years. This is an epic saga that I enjoy reading over and over again. Every time my bell notification goes off I’m hoping that it’s a new chapter. If you’re looking for a well written roller coaster ride you’ve come to the right place. Mark’s writing is exceptional and he’ll leave you gasping for more. 
 

P.S. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg, also served on the HMS Valiant in the Mediterranean, 140 years later.
