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.
