I am the daughter of the Viscount Admiral Sir Edward Pellew. One of his more difficult children, if that can be believed. For I must confess my dear brother Fleetwood is no walk in the park. Regardless of how much favoritism his gets. There is much to be said on my relationship with dear Captain Hornblower and the story as to how I met Arthur but that is a tale for another day.
The ruins of Rievaulx Abbey in North Yorkshire. Established in 1132 and dissolved in 1538 by the orders of Henry the 8th during the period of the dissolution of the English Monasteries. It was one of the largest and wealthiest abbeys in England.
