TO HAVE AND TO HOLD....WAS A BEST SELLER WHEN WRITTEN....IT WILL HOLD YOU IN SUSPENSE....PIRATES AND ALL....

To Have and to Hold is the story of an English soldier turned Virginian explorer in colonial Jamestown. He buys a wife for himself - a girl named Jocelyn Leigh - little knowing that she is the escaping ward of King James I, fleeing a forced marriage to Lord Carnal. Jocelyn hardly loves Ralph - indeed, she seems to abhor him. Her husband-to-be eventually comes to Jamestown, not knowing that Ralph Percy and Jocelyn Leigh are man and wife.

Lord Carnal attempts to kidnap Jocelyn several times and eventually follows Ralph, Jocelyn, and their two companions - Jeremy Sparrow, the Separatist minister, and Diccon, Ralph's servant - as they escape from the King's orders to arrest Ralph and carry Jocelyn back to England. The boat that they are in, however, crashes on a desert island, but they are accosted by pirates, who, after a short struggle, agree to take Ralph as their captain, after he pretends to be the pirate "Kirby". The pirates gleefully play on with Ralph's masquerade, until he refuses to allow them to rape and pillage those on board Spanish ships.

I have a hard back copy of this book. I enjoyed it for one reason - it is based on a true story of two of my ancestors. William Overton was the son of General Robert Overton who had been exiled by the King. William was Protestant and had fallen in love with Elizabeth Waters, who was Catholic. William came to Jamestown in search of his father. Tradition says that he sent tobacco back to England to pay Elizabeth's passage. Her maid's brother got her aboard a ship headed to Virginia. William rowed out to the ship when she arrived and they were married aboard. The book was first published in 1899 and was reprinted in 1953. I have a copy of the reprint. I may have to reread it.
