Meet the Author

Captain Frederick Marryat (10 July 1792 - 9 August 1848) was a British Royal Navy officer, a novelist, and an acquaintance of Charles Dickens. He is noted today as an early pioneer of the sea story, particularly for his semi-autobiographical novel Mr Midshipman Easy (1836), for his children's novel The Children of the New Forest (1847), and for a widely used system of maritime flag signalling, known as Marryat's Code.

The first documenting of the Flying Dutchman, The Phantom Ship tells the amazing story of a man cursed by his father's dying words and his beautiful wife's fight to keep her religious beliefs while she waits for his return. Though the language can take some getting used to, the story had me hooked by the end of the first chapter. This book is a love story, a ghost story, and an adventurous sea story, with plot twists that include a werewolf and the Spanish Inquisition. I highly recommend it!
