Summary:

"Jack Biddlecomb, son of Isaac Biddlecomb, the protagonist of James L. Nelson's popular Revolution at Sea Saga, finds himself taking command of the merchant vessel Abigail bound for Barbados. With the French making prizes of American merchant ships, the Abigail's owner has outfitted the ship with guns and instructed Jack to fight if need be to keep his ship out of French hands. What Jack does not know, though his passengers do, is that he is being used as part of a bigger plot, one that will have repercussions on an international scale. The French Prize is a page-turning work of historical fiction, focusing on the Age of Sail and the struggle of the new-found nation of the United States to assert its independence in a world at war and against the great powers of Europe"--Provided by publisher.
