Her husband was a Civil Lord of the Admiralty who made many ocean voyages by steam yacht to test this new technology. Anna Brasseys description of these travels led to her becoming a best-selling author. In 1883 the Brasseys travelled to the Caribbean and back in the Sunbeam. Her account of the voyage, with many delightful illustrations, is vividly written in considerable detail. It mixes exotic descriptions with lively accounts of domestic life on board with her young family and dogs. Inconveniences are made light of, and she relishes new experiences and acquaintances, showing none of the condescension towards foreigners often exhibited by Victorian travellers.
