subject I study and read about them I watch TV andilms with them I even create my own lady pirate characters or stories I love themSo the act that this book contained a The Northman's Bride fierce red headed lady pirate captain I was all over it so to speak There was theear that I may be disappointed it s not like books about lady pirates grow on trees because this book was written by a male author and told Blood Trails: The Combat Diary of a Foot Soldier in Vietnam from the perspective of a man Ieared because I thought the lady pirate may be some unrealistic male Cherry Bomb fantasy Alas no

Kids, and His Ex-Wife: Becoming a Stepmother with Humor and Grace food she s after the elusive Brass Fox with whom she has a mysterious score to settleWe see all the characters through the view of Wedgwood and it was uiteascinating to read how his perspective of everyone and of pirating in general started to change throughout the months Of course the best thing to watch was how his view of Mabbot changed How she went When Red Cried Wolf from a one dimensional ruthless pirate to aull ormed person with strengths and weakness goals and earsPirating was not glossed over here and was not seen as romantic I thought the book really captured the grittiness of piratingI could literally sit here and write paragraphs about Mabbot but I just have to say I was really impressed Like I said it s not everyday a book about a lady pirate comes out so I have to read "what i can get the act that i "I can get The act that I t disappointed in the least makes me very very happy She s everything I
