Poet At Larger Reviews, Book, Bloody Jack   Leave a comment

When little Mary Faber grows tired of her life as an Orphan of the streets of London she shaves her head, takes the name of Jack and dresses as a boy to join the crew of a ship set out to fight Pirates.  All sorts of adventures await.  She must use her wits and hide her true gender in order to survive.  L.A. Meyer spins a wonderful tale of a time in the past, when Men were men and Woman had to fight to be free.  As Mary gains the nickname Bloody Jacky for fighting pirates and defending her honor she blossoms from street rat into young lady and must face the trials of young love and her true self revealed to the world.  Her courage is inspiring and gives one reason to smile.  There are many woman in history that dressed as men to gain the freedoms a man had or to join armies in times of war.  “Bloody Jack” pays a good honor to them all.

From the Poet’s Mouth,

Lyda Mae Dameron
