Where Gold Liesby Jacqueline George
On the island where Flint buried untold wealth in gold and
After Captain Flint dies in Savannah from the effects of yellow fever and too much rum, young Dick Brown and his pirate shipmates set out to find Flint's hidden treasure. Their quest leads them first to England and then back to the Caribbean, searching for the vital chart that will lead them to the spot.
On the island where Flint buried untold wealth in gold and jewels, Long John Silver, Dick Brown and the pirate crew struggle to win control of the chart. Will they finally succeed and will their victory bring them the riches they dream of? Or will Dick find that there is more to life than gold, and that true love has a value far beyond sparkling jewels?
"I was a bit sceptical at first believing that no one could add to or improve on Treasure Island, but I was mistaken. The author does a great job of telling the story from another angle and continuing on after the original story ends. I have always enjoyed family stories and this reads just like one as it is written from a father to his daughter. It just seems so much more personal written in this style. The plot and the characters are very well done and this one will be difficult for you to put down." Maura ~ Coffee Time Romance & More
"This is beautifully written, and cleverly put together. The sounds and smells of the sea, the loss of men and friends and any sense of attachment to man or principle pervade this work. The men - from Long John Silver to Billy Bones, have names that offer the sound and sense of the times. They weigh anchor and dream of the nearest taverns, wait to ambush ships full-laden from Charleston. Our narrator shares views of the people they see - especially the women of the West Indies. Yet, to our young narrator- none can compare to the beautiful Isabel. We see her importance early on - but are swept back into the story of this young man's days in England, his time at sea, and the pursuit of treasure which would make many men famous. Unexpected and unpredictable turns crop up, just when you think you can predict how it will all turn out." Snapdragon ~ Long & Short Romance Reviews
