Summary
The daughter of a shipwright, Marsh spent much of her youth at sea until she was captured and taken to Morocco in 1756. Escaping, she married a merchant, and while sailing to India managed to stop in exotic ports of call along the way. Marsh leveraged family connections to the British naval bureaucracy to facilitate her voyaging, published a memoir of her Moroccan captivity, and enjoyed a tour of India accompanied by a dashing, unmarried British officer, living a life of travel and adventure few eighteenth-century women could even imagine. Some descriptions of violence, and some descriptions of sex. c2007
