"Lisa Jensen writes a highly enjoyable tale of Tory Lightfoot and her coming of age on the high seas. Her story has a little bit of everything - adventure, humor, tragedy, romance, Shakespeare!

 

Several aspects of this story make it truly exceptional. It's not formulaic - you're not sure how it's really going to end. Jensen avoided all the pitfalls of making this into your average pirate romance. Thirdly, in such a graphic tale of piracy on the high seas, I was not expecting the humor. Tory is a very likeable heroine with a strong will that you can relate to. Hats off to Lisa Jensen for her fantastic novel!"
