Listeners will be enchanted by Jennifer Wiltsie's narration of the exploits of female pirates Nancy Kington and Minerva Sharpe. Wiltsie's characterization of Nancy, the merchant's daughter, is spellbinding, blending a slightly aristocratic British accent with the attitudes of the eighteenth-century American bourgeoisie. Minerva, a slave at birth, is equally well done. The stage for adventure is set when the two women cross the path of the evil Brazilian pirate turned plantation owner who yearns to marry Nancy so that he may acquire her inheritance. This is an enchanting tale of two brave souls who escape their predetermined stations in life and fight for their freedom.
