There's an old saying, "Where there's a will, there's a relative." In Trove, the relatives just happen to be descendants of notorious 18th century pirate, Blackbeard.
Now if you're thinking this is starting to sound like Pirates of the Caribbean, think again. While every bit as engaging, this Southern yarn takes on new ground as part-thriller, part-drama, with some of the funniest scenes you'll ever read mixed in for good measure.
In Trove, David McGukin has created a world unto itself, where secrets run deep and old alliances run amok. While billed as a coming-of-age story, at sixty-five, the flamboyant Luna Belle Black is a late-bloomer. This only throws gas on the fire as you go along with Luna Belle on the ride of her life.
With characters as enchanting as the scenery, and plot as thick as shrimp & grits, David McGukin's first-time novel delivers a story of unfathomable riches and unmatched soul.
