It is the dawn of the eighteenth century, when girls stay home and sew while men sail the high seas finding adventure, danger, and gold. But two unusually adventurous girls—a rich merchant’s daughter, Nancy Kington, and her former plantation slave, Minerva Sharpe—take to the high seas from Jamaica on a ship the crew renames Deliverance. Not just any trading ship, the Deliverance flies black flags from its mast, proclaiming to all that the newly named, hijacked ship is a pirate vessel, striking fear into the hearts of those she approaches. Or so they hope.

For Nancy, the Deliverance is her escape from an arranged betrothal to a controlling and devilish man. For Minerva, it is an escape from slavery, as well as from the fearsome overseer on Nancy’s family plantation. But in the end, the money, the adventure, the companionship, and the chance to see the world not as women, but as bold and daring pirates, is an opportunity neither can deny.

A powerful, thrilling, and ultimately inspiring journey of two women who break the bonds of gender, race, and position to find their own way to glory.

    " Brilliant book for child and teenage lovers of historical fiction and/or pirates. Gives a good insight to the less-obvious who were involved in the slave trade, also picks up on my local area's history too. Very glad I picked this up. Wish to read another Celia Rees novel in the near future. "

    " Actually a "young-adult" book but a good one...very fast read. Loved it! "

    " This is a great adventure book for adolescent fiction. Would recommend it to my students and my daughters. It is carefully researched and presents the moral dilemmas of what we take for granted in our everyday lives, which come at the hands of injustice and pain inflicted in the lives of others. While this theme is briefly touched upon in the story, it is a good introduction for young readers. "

    " Altogether an interesting tale, but I was let down by the ending. "
