Summary
"It is 1740 and Louise Fletcher, a young dairy maid on an Essex farm, has been warned of the lure of the sea for as long as she can remember--after all, it stole away her father and brother. But when she is offered work in the bustling naval port of Harwich, as a lady's maid to a wealthy captain's daughter, she leaps at the chance to see more of the world. There she meets Rebecca, her haughty young mistress, who is unlike anyone Louise has encountered before: as unexpected as she is fascinating. Intertwined with her story is fifteen-year-old Luke's: He is drinking in a Harwich tavern when it is raided by Her Majesty's Navy. Unable to escape, Luke is beaten and press ganged and sent to sea on board the warship Essex. He must learn fast and choose his friends well if he is to survive the brutal hardships of a sailor's life and its many dangers, both up high in the rigging and in the dark below decks. Louise navigates her new life among the streets and crooked alleys of Harwich, where groaning houses riddled with smugglers' tunnels are flooded by the spring tides, and love burns brightly in the shadows. Luke, aching for the girl he left behind and determined to one day find his way back to her, embarks on a long and perilous journey across the ocean. The worlds they find are more dangerous and more exciting than they could ever have imagined, and when they collide the consequences are astonishing and irrevocable. A breathtakingly accomplished love story and a gripping search for identity and survival, She Rises is a bold, brilliant, and utterly original novel"--

Summary
Louise Fletcher is content with her life as a dairymaid in 1740 Essex -- until her employer, Captain Handley, chooses her to serve as a lady's maid to his daughter Rebecca. Louise's story alternates with that of 15-year-old Luke Fletcher, who finds himself aboard a ship bound for the West Indies after being press-ganged into the Royal Navy. Louise, who falls in love with her mistress, risks her life to save Rebecca when both women fall ill with smallpox, while Luke experiences the many dangers and privations of a life at sea. Despite the very different trajectories of the Fletchers' lives, both intricately plotted narratives unfold in vivid, descriptive language that artfully evokes life in 18th-century England. - Description by Gillian Speace
