Pirates!

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

Review

Two young women, one escaping marriage to an evil and domineering man, the other a runaway slave wanted for murder, choose to live as buccaneers.

Pirates! traces the adventures of Nancy Kington and Minerva Sharpe as they sail the high seas, often fighting for their lives, in the hope of gaining glory and riches.

The girls form a deep and loving friendship as they search for love, wealth and happiness, all the while trying to keep one step ahead of the sinister, black pirate seeking to extract revenge. A vivid adventure story rich in historical detail which transports the reader to an exciting but dangerous era.
