The Normandy Privateer

By David McDine

England. 1800s.

Young Lieutenant Oliver Anson has died, and his family install a memorial in their church to commemorate his service to King and country.

On a mission to capture a French privateer in a small Normandy harbour, he was felled by a musket ball in the head and left among the dead and wounded on the shore. Only Anson turns out not to be dead, but very much alive, and stuns even fellow seamen with his miraculous resurrection.

It is, however, far from plain sailing to escape from behind enemy lines and get back across the Channel. And the ambitious Anson is then dealt a hammer blow by the admiralty when he is denied a new sea-going appointment. Instead his future is to be land-based, defending the Kent coastline from French invasions.

Perhaps worse, Anson finds himself falling into the clutches of a local bigwig’s voluptuous, husband-hunting daughter.

The Normandy Privateer charts the ups and downs of Lieutenant Anson and shines a poignant light on the loneliness and responsibilities of command.
