'Moonfleet', by J. Meade Falkner (Book Club, February '23)

Moonfleet, by J. Meade Falkner, was published in 1898, and is an atmospheric adventure story set on the Dorset coast in England in the mid-18th century. I remember the book fondly, having read it as a child in the late 1970s — smugglers! the crypt! Blackbeard’s ghost! a jewel! the scene in the well! So I am curious to see how it reads now, from an adult perspective, decades later.

You can download a copy of the e-book from Project Gutenberg or Standard Ebooks, and an audiobook version is available from LibriVox. But any unabridged edition (paper, digital or audiobook) is fine.
