I did get the adult version for free, and for the price I am happy with the book. I think that I just wanted more. More detail, more description, but told like a story, not textbook. I'm not in danger of throwing in the towel any time soon though.
Patrick's father had died leaving his family in debt. While trying to pay his father's debts, Patrick loses the last of his family's wealth.
At this time in history, James Oglethorpe, a British reformer, has founded the Georgia colony as an alternative for imprisoning debtors.
As luck would have it, Patrick is selected to travel to Georgia as an indentured servant.
In Georgia, Patrick's contract is purchased by Archibald Freeman. Freeman is a member of a clandestine group of individuals who are fighting the tyranny of the British.
As the story progresses, Patrick learns more about freedom. He comes to learn that pirates at sea possess the ultimate in individual freedom. Patrick, along with others, form a free society known as the Pirates of Savannah.
I advise readers of this novel to peruse the front matter and preface of the book. this will inform the reader of the author's political beliefs. This will enhance the reader's understanding of the novel and the motivations of the characters.
I was somewhat disappointed in this novel. I was expecting a novel of pirates. There were pirates, but they entered the plot late in the story. I found it interesting that Lupo's pirates supported their freedom with criminal acts such as piracy and prostitution.
Additionally, I did not like the author's narrative style.
For me, not a bad book, but it could have been better.
After finding his true love, they travel with his wife, who is the captain of the pirate ship, a rarity of the times. Later he is reunited with his sister in the New World, and later make a great treasury find. After facing many dangerous battles, losing many friends, but finding his place in the world, he moves on with his wife to make the best of their lives to live to the fullest.
The strengths of this book are the very well written and detailed scenes of the lives of the people during this time. Warfare is hardly the only enemy of pirates; disease and starvation on the open seas plaque many ships. He also gives great detail of the battles on land and sea, in a violent, dangerous time when only the strongest can survive.
After the ending the author provides and excellent piece about what was and was not fiction in the novel, something I found to be very interesting and added depth to the story.
Readers, if you’re looking for an action-packed story that shows not only the glory, but also the real hardships of pirate life, this book’s for you. I can say I’ve learned a lot from it, and it’s a smooth, easy read, so check it out. Five stars!
