We then are taken back to the time of the pirates. Be warned this story is pretty gruesome at times with knives and guns in plentiful supply. Example - "Tratt's face was a bloody stew of red meat and bone."
We are introduced to the young boy, Aaron right at the beginning of the story and what is happening to him is not too pleasant either. Aaron learns to watch from a distance, keeping busy in the galley as he recovers from his wounds and scars. Who is Rosalie? Aaron wants a pet but what happens when he gets one? Happiness for a while but then what? Aaron has a chance to join Blackbeard's crew when Blackbeard and Bonnet part ways but decides to stay with Bonnet. Sadness hits when he realizes what his enemy Pell has done. Even though he has many opportunities for going on shore he doesn't want to run the risk of running into Pell so stays on board.
Why was Aaron suffering like this? All these trials? How does the Bible help him? What happens when he witnesses a young boy murdered in front of his parents? How does he feel? What does he determine? When Jonathan and Thomas come along, can they be true friends? How do they help Aaron and vice versa? What happens when Thomas is arrested?
What is the hold Bonnet has on Aaron? Will Aaron learn to stand up to him or always conform to his will? Forgiveness is tough for Aaron and we see his genuine struggles with this throughout the book and especially towards the end. There is also a good gospel message presented.
There is SO much more in this story then I have written about in this review. If you like real life action of the times presented along with history and some fiction then you are sure to enjoy this well-written and researched book. You will find yourself drawn into the character's lives, probably wishing you could throw a knife or two at the baddies!
I really enjoyed this book. It flowed easily, never dragged, and offered twists that left me unsure about what would happen next. Mrs. Cronk had such a way of pulling me into the story that I "felt" the anxiety of the characters and hoped for positive outcomes for them. I even rooted for the pirates and hoped that they would choose to do what was right. One part of the story that stood out to me was how the author smoothly used the character, Trott, to present salvation to the other characters in the book as well as to us, the readers.
I hope that you will enjoy this book as much as I did.
