In 1851, when the world's only female navigator loses her job, she must undertake a perilous clipper race around Cape Horn to secure her future. But even as she battles storms, currents, and hidden shoals, she finds an even greater danger lurks on board—one that will force her to decide what she’s willing to lose in order to win.

Inspired by the true story of Ellen Creesy, navigator of the Flying Cloud, The Cloud Wife will be published as a trilogy by BETTEREST BOOKS in 2025.
