“This ‘great historical novel’ has as its theme the life of Captain Matthew Flinders R. N., hydrographer, explorer, the first man to circumnavigate and to name the fifth continent: Terra Australis.
IN July 1801, when Flinders set sail from England in HMS Investigator, he was forced to leave behind him his young bride of only a few weeks, Ann Chappell, his childhood sweetheart.  He was not to see her again for more than nine years.  During that time he carried out incredible feats of seamanship and navigation, made the first charts of much of the coastline of the continent, was shipwrecked and later held prisoner by the French on Mauritius.
My Love Must Wait, is both a tender portrayal of faithful devotion, and a stirring re-creation of the courage and endurance of one of history’s greatest seamen.”
