Diagram of a Frigate

Research! It leads me down paths I never expected to travel. In Sweet Liberation, Lady Joanna spends a great deal of time on the earl of Sener’s frigate.  I needed to know the layout of the ship in order to accurately portray how the couple and crew would live and interact with each other in their floating castle.  This image, while a bit difficult to decipher at first, helped me tremendously, along with Ship’s Miscellany: A Guide to the Royal Navy of Jack Aubrey by Michael O’Mara Books Limited.

This image of the HMS Surprise was the inspiration for Sweet Liberation.
