KIRKUS REVIEW

British Navyman John Rigby's adventures in 1659 begin aboard the Albatross a ship readying to capture Spanish galleons, and go on to include his romance with the Quaker Anne Parry who is rescued from a plague ship. After Anne is put ashore in Baltimore, the Albatross is betrayed to King Charles, but John, now a Quaker, escapes to be reunited with Anne. Historical fiction of great innocence.
