This brilliant book is a daring tale that tells of Nancy Kington and Minerva Sharpe, both female pirates.
When Nacy’s rich father dies, she is shipped off to her inheritance: her fathers sugar plantation in Jamaica. Disgusted by the fact she ‘owns’ human lives, she makes firm friends with her lady-in-waiting, Minerva Sharpe.
When Bartholeme, a greedy plantation owner, tries to force Nancy to marry him, her and Minerva escape the island the only way they can: by joining a band of visiting pirates.
Enthralled by their new life, Nancy and Minerva sail the sea, narrowly avoiding danger; Nancy constantly dreaming of her childhood love, William, who was tricked into become a crew member of a slave ship by his own father.
A hugely exciting story with a dramatic ending, Pirates! is the perfect book to start you Pirate season off with.
