Matthew Lawe,master mariner,whose spectacular act of cowardice in the midst of Drake's defeat of the Spanish Armada brought upon him a wild witch's curse that he stay on earth until his guilt was purged.
In unending pursuit of salvation,Matthew sailed with Hudson on his last doomed voyage in search of a North-West Passage through the frozen wilderness of the North American continent; fought as a buccaneer under Henry Morgan in the Caribbean; served Samuel Pepys as he transformed rotting hulks,pressed men and professional time-servers into the King's Navy; stood at Captain Cook's right hand as he navigated the narrows of the St. Lawrence to carry General Wolfe to the storming of Quebec,followed him as he charted unknown seas,watched his violent death on a Hawaiian beach.
In due course,Matthew became an intimate of Nelson's household as the sea captain farmed his Norfolk acres in premature retirement, served under him when war with the French took him back to sea,to victory on the Nile,to Naples and Emma,and to Trafalgar.
Matthew Lawe embodies the spirit of British seamen who mastered the seven oceans during the last four hundred years,whose appetite for adventure carried the fame of Britain across the world.But,while they were mortal,for Matthew there was no rest.
The full story of 'The Master Mariner' cannot be told within the compass of one volume.'Running Proud' is the first half of this epic novel,carrying Matthew from the Armada to Trafalgar - see book my ID rja562115 for 2nd and concluding part/volume.
