Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston--under dire circumstances, of course--Jacky Faber boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don't go as planned, and soon Jacky is off on a wild misadventure at sea. She thwarts the lecherous advances of a crazy captain, rallies sailors to her side, and ultimately gains command of a ship in His Majesty's Royal Navy. But Jacky's adventures don't end there. . . .
     Includes a teaser to Jacky's next adventure, In the Belly of the Bloodhound.

Synopsis:

The third Jacky Faber book, now in paperback

Synopsis:

On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring mission—this time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things don't always go as planned.

Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desires—until now.

This is the most surprising series I have ever read. I never know when I am going to meet a childhood friend. When did I last hear of Mike Fink? Other times I feel like I'm reading Patrick O'Brien for kids. I'm addicted.
