A pirate at heart, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humor, wit, and courage. After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston—under dire circumstances, of course—Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don’t go as planned and soon she is off on a wild misadventure at sea. She thwarts the lecherous advances of a crazy captain, rallies the sailors to her side, and ultimately gains command of a ship in His Majesty’s Royal Navy. But Jacky’s adventures don’t end there … eventually she is being called a pirate, and there’s a price on her head! Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jacky is a wonderful character, full of high spirits, brains, and heart. This novel and its two prequels are highly recommended for fans of historical fiction and pirates.”
