Pirates!
Pirates! | Celia Rees
11 posts | 23 read | 15 to read
When two young women meet under extraordinary circumstances in the eighteenth-century West Indies, they are unified in their desire to escape their oppressive lives. The first is a slave, forced to work in a plantation mansion and subjected to terrible cruelty at the hands of the plantation manager. The second is a spirited and rebellious English girl, sent to the West Indies to marry well and combine the wealth of two respectable families. But fate ensures that one night the two young women have to save each other and run away to a life no less dangerous but certainly a lot more free. As pirates, they roam the seas, fight pitched battles against their foes and become embroiled in many a heart-quickening adventure. Written in brilliant and sparkling first-person narrative, this is a wonderful novel in which Celia Rees has brought the past vividly and intimately to life.

I loved Witch Child and Sorceress, and this is very obviously written by the same author. Nearly identical writing style, very similar plot development. However, I‘m loving the story!

@lemonlime799 Also, here is my Italian Greyhound, Luna and my late guinea pig, Pirate. I'm addicted to pets.

queerbookreader Guinea pigs are so cute omg and I've never heard of Italian greyhounds! A long time ago my parents were going to adopt a retired racing greyhound but then mom ended up pregnant with me so I ruined it for them 😂 thank you for sharing! 💛 3y
drokka What a great name for a guinea pig. Your dog is lovely! 3y
