Fabulous book. It made me feel like I was really there in the 1500s. Their lives were fascinating.

What a great book! It sucks you in and puts you right there. How could anyone live thru all that? Incredible and true. I have much respect for how it must have been to live in that time, just to survive, much less thrive and be true to yourself.

With the ever growing pirate obsession it's become more common to see someone with pirate memorabilia, or for instance saying that Jack Sparrow is the best thing to ever grace theater screens. But what of those female pirates? Those few daring women who became involved in a life where superstitious odds were against them. Sure there's Anne Bonny and Mary Read to name two of the most well known of the female pirates. Both I might add having to hide their identity to be welcomed aboard. The there's Grace O'Malley not only did she command a fleet without the use of a disguise, but she was worthy enough to have Queen Elzabeth 1 take interest in her piratical exploits. I thought the book portrayed an interesting picture of life during the 16th century as well having a brillant storyline. Interweaving together the lives of both Grace and Elizabteth into a beautiful story. Not exactly the shining example of historical accuracy, but still an enthralling story. Best Book Ever simply because now I can point out that sure Jack Sparrow may be hot stuff, but I doubt he's ever going to have the pleasure of meeting a queen.
