Halfhyde on the Yangtze, book no.8 The Halfhyde Adventures, by Philip McCutchan

Tested by Fate Book 2:The Nelson and Emma Trilogy

It's 1784 and Nelson is sent to the Caribbean to enforce the hated Navigation Acts. While there, he marries Fanny Nisbet. Ordered next to the Mediterranean, 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 honor he desperately craves. At the same time, Emma, mistress of Charles Greville, sits as an artist's model, her pictures selling briskly. When Charles's uncle, Sir William Hamilton, joins them in Naples, Emma finds herself the object of Hamilton's 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?

"The strength of Donachie's writing lies in his convincing dialogue that brilliantly conveys the personalities of Nelson and Hamilton. The author certainly has done his homework . . . historical facts are very cleverly intertwined into the story." --Bookpleasures.com
