Synopses & Reviews
Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei
Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins
against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested
and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia. To add insult to
injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry female convicts to populate New South
Wales. Not one to give in to self-pity, Jacky rallies her sisters to “better” their position—
resulting in wild escapades, brushes with danger, and much hilarity.
"[Jacky] uses her wit, beauty, charm, and numerous skills to wiggle herself out of yet another fine mess. . . . Easy to read and entertaining."—VOYA "Meyer knows how to spin an exciting yarn, particularly on the high seas. Fans will enjoy watching this irrepressible and decidedly uninhibited heroine make the best of yet another seemingly hopeless predicament."—Booklist
