Beschreibung

The second part of an epic trilogy that chronicles the private lives and dangerous times of Englands greatest naval hero and his legendary mistress.It is 1784 and Nelson is sent to the Caribbean to enforce the hated Navigation Acts. While there, he marries Fanny Nisbet but it isnt long before he is ordered to the Mediterranean, where he engages in a string of spectacular naval battles: Cape St Vincent, Tenerife, and the Nile. The ravages of war take their physical toll on Nelson, even as he gains the fame and honour he desperately craves.At the same time, Emma, mistress of Charles Greville, sits as an artists model, her pictures selling briskly. When Charless uncle, Sir William Hamilton, joins them in Naples, Emma finds herself the object of Hamiltons desire, and when the mercurial Nelson pays them a visit, she is inexplicably drawn to the brash sea captain. Her eventual marriage to Hamilton seems the epitome of good fortune, opening all the doors of Europe to her but how can she forget Nelson when he has not forgotten her?
