Whilst this novel has a naval title the description indicates that this may be peripheral.


This is a tale of inheritance. A family inhabiting a castle in Shetland, a group of islands to the north of Scotland, is also apparently entitled to a title and lands in Spain and elsewhere. But who of the Shetland family is the rightful heir? The Spanish usurpers are well aware that the true heir is in Shetland, and their agent is a priest who appears several times in
the book. Apart from all this there is a background of seamanship and sailing vessels, for the time is just after the Napoleonic War with France.
