40 BRUFF, Nancy Manatee

Pp (8),7-251,(3). 8vo, brown cloth, cream lettering to spine, figurehead illustration on front board.Jacket illustration by William Sharp. "A robust, powerful novel - the story of Jabez Folger, a savage, romantic man of the sea, with a sinister secret in his past, and a passion for his ship's figurehead no living, breathing woman could satisfy. [...] Against the colorful background of Nantucket at the peak of her great whalingdays, Nancy Bruff has set this bold, sweeping drama of vibrant love and co rrosive hatred. It was on Jabez Folger's first whaling voyage, at fifteen, that he had a dark and terrible experience, so evil that it changed his whole life. Hating the land and all things that came from it, Jabez' only emotion was for his beloved ship, the Manatee, whose weathered, but to him unbearably beautiful, figurehead symbolized all the mystery and indifference ofthe sea itself. At rare intervals Jabez' tender nature returned briefly, a nd if was in one of these softened, alien moods that he courted and marriedPiety, the gentle Quaker girl from Martha's Vineyard, and brought her home to Nantucket. Then deliberately and maliciously he murdered his young brid e's love, transforming it to a bitter hatred. Born of this strange union, conceived in love and hate, Luke and Saffron Folger were not like other children. Luke's empty, bright nature had no need of outside comforts, but Saffron, of the tawny hair and gold-flecked eyes, fiercely eager to embrace life, longed for love and understanding. And it was on the warm, fragrant bosom of Flowery Shrine, their half-caste, South Sea island servant, that Saffron poured out her great yearnings." - from the dj flaps.
