Today we are tacking into fear and scaling riggings, in a novel set on the sea and in ports in the 1740s by Kate Worsley. And we are also being buffeted about in the Renaissance, and learn about a pope and his illegitimate children. Sarah Dunant's Blood And Beauty questions the bad reputation of Alexander VI.
