#Swashbucklers
blurb
ReadZenRites
The Furies | John Jakes

I‘m using this for both today and yesterday‘s prompts. It‘s not exactly a #PennyDreadful nor does it have traditional #Swashbucklers, and it‘s even not terribly old. Published in 1976, it‘s fly leaf declares, “Without blood there is no remission of sin!” introducing an epic tale of family, vengeance, gold, Clipper Ships, and the Alamo. My mom kept very few paperbacks, so it clearly made an impression.

Samplergal I remember that book. Well reading it. I can‘t remember what the heck it was about but we all passed those around. 2y
CoverToCoverGirl I read the entire series in the early 80‘s when it was fairly new, my how times flies. The first book in the series had a very scandalous title, for the time, back in 1974. 2y

GarthRanzz I read these back when, another series taken from my mom‘s shelf. I enjoyed the (now cheesy) TV miniseries adaptations too. 2y
