In the last years of the 18th century, as revolution raged in France, feminist writer and radical pamphleteer Mary Wollstonecraft embarked alone on a journey to the wilds of Scandinavia to recover her husband's lost treasure ship. This daring and dangerous journey was undertaken as much for reasons of the heart as for those of commerce, but her brilliant triumph failed to recover the thing she wanted most of all.

Item Type: Broadcast
Additional Information: This new radio play about Mary Wollstonecraft's journey to Scandinavia in pursuit of stolen treasure and a doomed love affair, incorporates the research unearthed by Mr Per Nystrom, governor of Gothenburg in the late 1970s. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and the British blockade, this full-length new play was specially commissioned by Radio 3 to open their Scandinavian season in October 2007.
