Sobre o livro
A clever, romantic novel based on the true story of a girl who disguised herself as a boy to sail with the infamous pirates Anne Bonny and Calico Jackand fell in love with Anne Bonny.
Theres no place for a girl in Marys world. Not in the home of her mum, desperately drunk and poor. Not in the household of her wealthy granny, where no girl can be named an heir. And certainly not in the arms of Nat, her childhood love who never knew her for who she was. As a sailor aboard a Caribbean merchant ship, Marys livelihoodand her safetydepends on her ability to disguise her gender.
At least, thats what she thinks is true. But then pirates attack the ship, and in the midst of the gang of cutthroats, Mary spots something she never could have imagined: agirl pirate.
The sight of a girl standing unafraid upon the deck, gun and sword in hand, changes everything. In a split-second decision, Mary turns her gun on her own captain, earning herself the chance to join the account and become a pirate alongside Calico Jack and Anne Bonny.
For the first time, Mary has a shot at freedom. But imagining living as her true self is easier, it seems, than actually doing it. And when Mary finds herself falling for the captains mistress, she risks everythingher childhood love, her place among the crew, and even her life.
Breathlessly romantic and brilliantly subversive,The Unbinding of Mary Reade is sure to sweep readers off their feet and make their hearts soar.
