The End of Innocence

Pirates! follows the exciting adventures of Nancy Kington, a wealthy merchant's daughter. Her regular life as a 16 year-old girl comes to an end when her father passes away and leaves his estate to his only daughter. As she sails from her old home in England to her new residence in Jamaica, she meets Adam Broom, the ship's first mate who later becomes a pirate captain. Nancy hates her new life under the guardianship of her nasty brother, who has plans to marry her off to a rich, but evil man.

Swashbuckling Adventures

In a desperate attempt to escape, Nancy runs away with her slave-turned-best friend, Minerva Sharpe, to join Adam's pirate ship. However, living life as a pirate is harder than either of the girls expected. They encounter all sorts of exciting yet dangerous escapades as they rob merchant ships, fight off enemies, and battle the stormy waves of the ocean. However, these experiences prove invaluable as both Nancy and Minerva learn the true tests of friendship, trust, and loyalty.


Love on the High Seas

Nancy enjoys her new pirate way of life, but feels desperately lonely and longs to be reunited with her childhood friend and first love, William. However, he has joined the navy and is hunting down criminals, specifically pirates, which is why Nancy and her pirate crew must escape William's sights! Although difficult circumstances keep them apart, Nancy's love for William keeps her strong throughout her struggles as a pirate.


The Bottom Line

Pirates! is a thick book, but it's entertaining. Once you pick up a copy, your eyes will stay glued to the adventurous tales and it'll be hard to put down - all 379 pages!
