Blackbeard the pirate was known for striking fear in the hearts of the bravest of sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of leaving his rigid life behind to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything. This is their story.

Edward "Teach" Drummond, son of one of Bristol's richest merchants, has just returned from a year-long journey on the high seas to find his life in shambles. Betrothed to a girl he doesn’t love and sick of the high society he was born into, Teach dreams only of returning to the vast ocean he’d begun to call home. There's just one problem: convincing his father to let him leave and never come back.

Following her parents' deaths, Anne Barrett is left penniless and soon to be homeless. Though she’s barely worked a day in her life, Anne is forced to take a job as a maid in the home of Master Drummond. Lonely days stretch into weeks, and Anne longs for escape. How will she ever realize her dream of sailing to CuraƧao—where her mother was born—when she's stuck in England?

From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn to each other, they’re trapped by society and their own circumstances. Faced with an impossible choice, they must decide to chase their dreams and go, or follow their hearts and stay. (Goodreads)

In my opinion, there just aren't enough books about pirates.
I LOVE PIRATES, and anything related to pirates!
And this retelling has Blackbeard, which makes me even more excited.
This book sounds really awesome, I can't wait to go on this adventure with Teach and Anne!!

  1. OOoh that one looks intriguing!! Love the cover too! Kinda reminds me of the Passenger's cover by Alexandra Bracken! (Pretty sure I'm remembering that right! LOL!) Great pick!

  2. I almost chose this book as my WoW as well. I LOVE pirates too, so I have high hopes for this novel. Great pick, Christy!

  3. Yes, Christy. This. I cannot wait to read it!

  4. I completely agree - I need more pirate books in my life (Why are there not more pirate books?! Pirates are AWESOME)!

    So excited for this book! And I adore the cover so much. It's so striking!

    Fabulous choice :)

  5. Normally I don't enjoy books about pirates, actually, although I haven't read many. But now having read the summary of that book and seeing your excitement for it, I would love to read that one as well. Maybe it can make me love pirates. :)
    Besides that, the cover just looks so intriguing that I just want to have a physical copy of it, haha.

  6. I love historical fiction and I think this sounds fun!


Thanks for stopping by! :)
