Annotation Based on a novel by Daphne du Maurier, the Restoration-era tale concerns Dona St. Columb, a Catholic in the age of William and Mary and a survivor of Cromwell's repression. Leaving her husband and the wealthy life of London society behind, a distraught Dona retreats to her country estate in Cornwall. In search of peace and solitude, she encounters the exact opposite. French pirates have overthrown the city and gained control of the local community. In fact, one pirate is living in her family's home and hiding his boat in a creek within their grounds. Dona attempts to rid her house of the Frenchman, but surprisingly, finds the rebellious character to be quite intriguing, possessing an attitude unlike the sophisticated men of London. Now, she finds herself caught between her growing affection for the pirate and the local community's attempt to defeat the raiders and capture the Frenchman. Menu navigation required.
