A library book I borrowed in the mid to late seventies. Have been trying to find it on and off for years. The story goes something like.....

A female Captain of an enormous spacecraft is pursueing a fugitive, who tricks her into flying too close to a star, but instead of destroying the ship, it breaks up into thousands of self contained individual ships. These are scattered widely, and our Captain finds herself alone, isolated with no way of making contact. However after an indeterminate length of time, she is rescued by the the survivors of the original ship, who have reassembled and searched for her since the disaster. She notes that not all the component parts of her original ship have survived.

I think I must have had to return the book before finishing it as thats all I can remember. Any information would be gratefully recieved. Thanks.
