The Witch of the Warspite
The story of two people whose lives become intertwined with events in the history of the eight ships called Warspite. One is an ordinary doctor from Ramsgate, the other is somewhat less ordinary. Together they must journey across time to complete a puzzle the purpose of which is vital to one but baffling to the other. More
John Hawthorn is a young doctor looking for a quiet life. He moves to a sleepy Cornish village after losing his family, as well as having suffered the traumas of the birth of the NHS in a busy London hospital. When the body of a beautiful young woman is found in a sealed compartment of a wrecked battleship, his life is thrown into turmoil as he is transported across time to eight incarnations of the ship in as many centuries.
Never really sure what he is looking for on this crazy quest, he winds up understanding a great deal about his own past and future, as well as that of the ships and the world on which he lives.
