Defiant women in a man’s world


We are looking forward to welcoming bestselling author Kate Mosse to Sherborne next month for an evening talk and signing with her brand new book The Ghost Ship.
A sweeping and epic love story, taking the reader from France in 1610 to Amsterdam and the Canary Islands in the 1620s. Across the seas of the seventeenth century, two seafarers are forced to fight for their lives.
The Barbary Coast, 1621. A mysterious vessel floats silently on the water – it is known only as the Ghost Ship. Manned by a courageous crew of mariners from Italy, France, Holland and the Canary Islands, for months it has hunted pirates to liberate those enslaved during the course of their merciless raids.
But the bravest among the crew are not who they seem and the stakes could not be higher. If arrested, they will be hanged for their crimes. Can they survive the journey and escape their fate?
The sequel to The City of Tears, The Ghost Ship is the third novel in The Joubert Family Chronicles. Published on 6th July, it is a thrilling novel of adventure and buccaneering, love and revenge, stolen fortunes and hidden secrets on the High Seas. Most of all, it is a tale of defiant women in a world run by men.
You can pre-order The Ghost Ship from Winstones and all good bookshops, but if you book to go along to the talk on 9th July, you can choose to receive a signed copy of the book as part of a £20 entry ticket.
