I wouldn't consider this a story about the war at all, to me it was more about the characters and the relationships between them. I didn't love the ending, I felt I was left with a lot of questions and everything just drifted off. There was no real conclusion. ( )

Characters weren't developed enough for me to feel invested in the story. This author has promise, for sure. ( )

Set in coastal North Carolina during the American Revolution, this novel follows Tabitha, a little girl who loves her father's stories from his days as a pirate, and her mother Helen, who died giving birth to Tabitha years before. Using eloquent, meticulous, and at times biblical prose, the author explores loss, the love between parent and child, and what it means to expand our horizons. While heartbreaking, this novel captures the senses and moves the reader in a way I have not encountered in a very long time.

I enjoy historical fiction, but I'm not sure that I enjoyed this one. The subject matter interested me, and it showed promise, but I found that I just didn't care what happened to the characters. The book may have been touted as a Revolutionary War novel, but that was a very small part of the book. The prose was nice, but the substance wasn't there. The characters weren't developed well, and too many things were left hanging. I can't say much more without giving away portions of the plot. ( )

I knew I won't love this book when a certain character died fifty pages in and I was treated to a gruesome description of a body being preserved in a barrel of rum. Overall, the characters in this book seem haunted by death and loneliness, which made it a very sad read for me (I only finished because its a rather short novel). ( )

There is a land of pure delight where saints immortal reign; Infinite day excludes the night, and pleasure banish pain. There everlasting spring abides, and never-withering flowers; death like a narrow sea divides this heavenly land from ours... But timorous mortals start and shrink to cross this narrow sea, and linger shivering on the brink, and fear to launch away.... Could we but climb where Moses stood and view the landscape o'er, not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold flood, should fright us form the shore. -Isaac Watts
