Odyssey 6. Bridgemont

   (3 reviews)

It is April, 1797, and England is still celebrating the victory at the Battle of St. Vincent. Sir George Granger is given orders to set off on a voyage to the East Indies, but there are several challenges that await him before he can even sail.

 

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 2012, 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.

George Granger continues his adventures both naval and sexual in this book. This odyssey is an around the world trip with many new assignments and problems.  As George continues to accumulate wealth, friends, power and enemies, he participates in some of history's greatest events of the era.  He also gets to know some of the famous people of the era as he engages in spectacular battles on land and water. Mark Arbour's writing style is engaging and easy to read.  That he includes well researched historical facts cleverly in the story is a bonus.  I highly recommend this series and book.

Response from the author:

Odyssey was and is my favorite of the Bridgemont saga.

Around the world in 77 chapters.  Great story telling. An addictive read.  

Response from the author:

Thank you so much.  This is my favorite of the Bridgemont Series (so far), and the one I'm proudest of, so I'm glad you enjoyed it.

This is the sixth story in the Bridgemont saga; and to this point in my opinion the best one so far. It truly has it all; the writing and plotting is just amazing; and Mark's continued ability to blend fiction with real history is just superb. 

This story has it all.  It has exciting battles, love and hate, great sex, and drama on both the high seas and in the emerging work of high finance.  

Anyone that has enjoyed any of the previous stories will just find more of whatever they loved here.
