A TRUE ACCOUNT Hannah Masury's Sojourn Amongst the Pyrates, Written by Herself

by | Read by Petrea Burchard

Historical Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Petrea Burchard channels the exhilaration and terror of eighteenth-century pirate life. In Boston in 1726, 17-year-old Hannah Masury finds herself in dire straits when she witnesses the death of a young sailor at the hands of ruthless privateers. Knowing that she must flee Boston, she disguises herself as a cabin boy aboard a pirate vessel captained by the infamous Ned Lowe. In 1930, Professor Marian Beresford is given a manuscript written by Hannah that may hold the secret to buried treasure. Burchard rousingly captures Hannah's forthright personality and courage, communicating her delight as she immerses herself in the happier parts of pirate life. Her portrayal of world-weary Marian, desperate for her father's approval and cautiously curious about the alleged treasure, resonates.
