Description: WINNER OF THE ESSENCE LITERARY AWARD IN FICTION In 1946, Hollywood's most famous swashbuckler, Errol Flynn, arrived in Jamaica in a storm-ravaged boat. After a long and celebrated career on the silver screen, Flynn spent the last years of his life on a small island off the Jamaican coast, where he fell in love with the people, the paradisiacal setting, and the privacy, and brought a touch of Tinseltown glamour to the West Indian community. Based on those years,The Pirate's Daughterimagines an affair between the aging matinee star and Ida, a beautiful local girl. Flynn's affections are unpredictable but that doesn't stop Ida from dreaming of a life with him, especially after the birth of their daughter, May. Margaret Cezair-Thompson weaves stories of mothers and daughters, fathers and lovers, country and kin, into this compelling, dual-generational coming-of-age tale of two women struggling to find their way in a nation wrestling with its own independence. Praise for The Pirate's Daughter: "A book-club-ready saga with two gorgeous women at its center [and] a knockout ending that reveals treasure buried beneath the sand-encrusted secrets." People(Critic's Choice) "[A] delicious premise . . . sets Margaret Cezair-Thompson'sThe Pirate's Daughterin motion, and from there, the novel never stops for breath once." O: The Oprah Magazine "Enthralling . . . ideal for readers looking to be swept away." The Christian Science Monitor "[A] ripe romantic novel . . . with page-turning panache . . . a melange of family saga, love story, and political-historical fiction served up in a tropical setting." The Boston Globe "The Pirate's Daughter captures perfectly the essence of Jamaica. . . . Your efforts will be rewarded with rich escape." The Dallas Morning News "A surprising yarn that is rich, salty and ultimately satisfying . . .The Pirate's Daughtersparkles with characters real and imagined."
