PIRATE'S PROMISE by Clyde Robert Bulla


Email this review


The plight of orphaned Tom Pipin and his ten year old sister was dire when in 1776 they found themselves at the mercy of their ruthless uncle. Tom is promptly dispatched as a bonded servant and sent from London on a perilous voyage to the New World, but his capture by pirates saves him from imminent bondage and leads him to fortune and security in the thriving Virginia colony. An orthodox adventure story of piracy and youthful courage, Pirate's Promise contains all the necessary ingredients -- action, pathos, and exoticism -- to make it a very digestible fictional offering.
