I figured I would start a blog where I could review whatever and maybe in the future even do a give away should I get enough followers. So that being said onward to my very first review!
The Noble Pirates
A vacation in the Bahamas goes awry, and a woman from 2009 unexpectedly finds herself in the 18th century -- amidst pirates. Sabrina is so consumed with her present-day problems that the last thing she expects is to suddenly end up face to face with real pirates. The notorious bad boys of the Golden Age of Piracy, Edward England, Howel Davis, and “Black Bart” Roberts, become Sabrina’s means of survival in the past, and ultimately, her key to returning to the future.
The catch? Sabrina happens to be carrying a book about pirates when she is swept into the past, and that book contains biographies of the very men she meets. She forms relationships with them and learns that, contrary to what she previously thought, they are sailors, servants, and slaves who were pressed into service, victims of social and historical circumstances of the era. She begins to wonder: Can she use her knowledge to change the past? Is her knowledge a blessing or a curse?
I totally loved this book. I can hardly wait for the second one that the end clearly states will be coming. The characters are so much fun to follow along with. Sabrina is so full of spunk! She is clearly a women of 2009, she is not to be put aside like the women of the 1700s. The Pirates England and Davis were kind of a puzzle and I would have never gathered that Roberts would have done what he did.
Sometimes, I thought I had things figured out but then BAM the book totally took a different turn and I was thrown for a loop and a good loop it was. I wish I could say more as to who I'd like to take a canon ball to and who I think I would strip too, but then I would take away from the loops of your reading. I think I may have to check out what the heck a booze cruise is!
