A Marriage at Sea by William Clark Russell book review

Go with me to the sea as a rich gentleman, stealing away your 17 year old lover from a catholic girl’s school with newly acquired yacht and crew to sail her away in this romantic seagoing elopement.

If you are in the gentleman’s club, and not blocked from all paths of free action and thought, (banned from all social media, bank accounts closed, TRANSACTIONS REVERSED, inventory stolen, shutdown and canceled) in this terrible purgatory system of “fake capitalism”, you may find this a delightful tale of maritime fiction.

However, in light of the current situation, where FBI narradigm (narrative/paradigm) goon enforcers will come to your home for speaking against the corporate state Alphabet Inc.gov, this story is very irksome, and I found myself wishing this “gentleman” and his woman were capsized and drowned in the deep green waters of the “English” channel.

Father, forgive me.

Enjoy this excellent FICTION book.
