I thoroughly enjoyed reading Privateer and highly recommend to others! The book opens with vivid, well-crafted scenes, whether fencing or tense verbal exchanges, that delight the reader and leave one wanting more. The story is suspenseful and unfolds during the American revolution in such an interesting way that sheds light on various perspectives and key historical figures of the time, and leaves the reader wanting to learn more. Privateer also would make a fantastic movie. The characters are distinct, likable and/or villanous, story suspensful and cleverly interwoven, and historical perspective that leaves us appreciative and proud of the guts, vision, and free spirit, of our country's forefathers.
