HMS Belvidera  4. Bridgemont

   (1 review)

It's 1795, and George Granger is promoted to Post Captain and takes command of a troubled frigate.

Before reading this story, consider:
1. It contains graphic descriptions of sex.
2. British money was denominated in either Guineas or Pounds. A Guinea was worth about 25-30 shillings, while a Pound was worth about 20 shillings. If coins are used, the reference is in Guineas, otherwise it is in Pounds. A guinea is worth approximately $300 US dollars in 2009, which means a shilling was worth approximately $10.
3. The characters in this story are fictional with the exception of some well-known historical figures. The involvement of those characters is fictional.
4. The story is written with modern day language, as opposed to that used in 18th century England.

At just over a quarter-million words with 44 chapters, Belvidera is the fourth book in the Bridgemont series in which George Granger  and his frigate perform heroic service for the crown.  I've just finished re-reading it and it is even better the second time around.  I have heartily recommended this series and this book is a particularly good one if you love naval strategy and stories!   Read and enjoy!
