Editorial Reviews


"Whitford delivers an enjoyable tale" -- Publishers Weekly

★★★★★ "From the moment where Adam Fletcher is kidnapped till the very end, the book will hold the attention of readers." -- Readers' Favorite

FIVE STARS - "... family-friendly and highly recommended for anyone interested in history or a good adventure!" -- Linda Phelps (Amazon Reviewer)

"...Perfectly paced with characters and dialogue so real the reader feels they are right in the middle of the action... No doubt, this book will leave you yearning to find out what's next for Adam Fletcher." -- Kevin Duffus, author of The Last Days of Black Beard the Pirate and 2015 NC Historian of the Year 

"Sara Whitford has successfully woven a fast-moving adventure of intrigue, romance, deception, and betrayal." -- Captain Horatio Sinbad, Privateer MEKA II, Beaufort NC

"With a seamless plot and vivid characters, this novel, set in Port Beaufort, North Carolina, in 1765, captivates the reader's imagination. When seventeen-year-old Adam Fletcher chooses to recklessly defend his single mother's reputation with his quick temper and fists, he is given two choices: jail or an apprenticeship. The delinquent's only consolation is the hope that he will work under the impressive Richard Rasquelle, a local hero and a successful port merchant. Adam, however, lands in the care of the elder Emmanuel Rogers, a staid member of the coastal colony and the only competitor of Rasquelle. It does not take long for Adam's impetuousness to land him in a tangled web filled with spying, betrayal, and life-threatening danger. When Adam finally uncovers the true evil players and the reasons behind his master's imprisonment, he is kidnapped and led away to a deserted coastal island. Readers will not be able to put down this historically accurate tale until they discover how Adam redeems himself and reveals the truth. Ages 15 and up." -- Krisan Murphy for
