Description
Lyrically written and bursting with the adventure and beauty of the Caribbean, "Kingston by Starlight brings to life the legendary exploits--based on historical fact--of Anne Bonny, an Irish woman pirate who sailed the West Indies in the 1700s. Left destitute by her mother's death, teenage Anne Bonny seems destined to be swallowed up and forgotten by the world. But Anne is a natural-born ?ghter, willing to do whatever it takes to make her way in life. She throws away her petticoats and sails to the Bahamas, where she passes herself off as a young man named Bonn. Bonn ?nds work as a ship's hand, sailing under the command of Calico Jack Rackam, a notorious and charismatic pirate who has his heart set on raiding the Madrid Galleon, the richest ship in the Caribbean, which sails from Kingston laden with Cuban gold and Jamaican rum. Bonn is entranced by the sea and by the ship's rough and violent crew, including a tough and mysterious sword'ghter named Read, who, it turns out, has a secret life of his own. Calico Jack soon discovers their true identities, but it is only when the three pirates are captured and taken back to Jamaica for trial that their darkest and most startling secrets begin to surface. In the shadow of the gallows, another strange twist of fate reveals the truth behind a shocking betrayal that may save Bonn from death, while permanently changing everything she has known about her past and the world around her.
