I was enjoying this historical tale when it went in a direction I was not expecting and which turned out to be thought provoking indeed. Bloody well done, and well read by Roy McMillan.

Many thanks to Peter May for tying up the loose threads after book 6, and for a short story, Ghost Marriage is a short sharp satisfying way to leave Margaret and Lee. Or will they be back..,???

How refreshing to hear a voice from the other side of the battle of the Atlantic. An excellent story, more so for being from the ordinary sailor’s perspective.
