Publisher's Summary

Patrick MacPherson is a qualified surgeon’s mate; but she’s not the man he claims to be. 

It's late October, 1762. After surviving the deadly siege of Havana, Patrick MacPherson and the rest of the ship’s company are looking forward to a well-deserved liberty in New York. But what happens in that colonial town will change the surgeon's mate's life in ways she could never have imagined. 

Using a dead man’s identity, young Patricia Kelley MacPherson is making her way as Patrick MacPherson, surgeon’s mate aboard His Majesty’s frigate Richmond. She's become adept at bleeding, blistering, and amputating limbs; but if her cover is blown, she’ll lose both her livelihood and her berth aboard the frigate. The ship’s gunner alone knows her secret - or does someone else aboard suspect that Patrick MacPherson is not the man he claims to be? 

Book Two of the Patricia MacPherson Nautical Adventure Series, adult historical fiction based on Linda Collison's Star-Crossed (Knopf; 2006), a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age - 2007.

good story fine narration, but a bit anachronistic

It's a decent series and I'll listen to the next one with pleasure. She does manage to convey the attraction of going to sea.

Loved it

As Patrick MacPherson, the main heroine is able to explore an entirely new freedom. This second book in the series does not disappoint. I enjoyed the story, cared about the characters, and found the historical references interesting.
As always, the narration was first rate.
