The Pirate Queen - Fiction, Modern

The Pirate Queen
By Patricia Hickman

Everyone thinks Saphora lives the perfect life – gorgeous house, handsome husband, money to spare.  Little do they know Saphora is longing to escape her troubled marriage and life of privilege for a simpler life of solitude.  Suitcase packed, Saphora is headed out the door when her husband comes home and announces he is dying.  Instead of escaping to her beach house for solitude, Saphora finds herself there with her dying husband, surrounded by family.  Will Saphora find the peace for which she longs even in the midst of trying circumstances?

I liked this book overall.  I thought the storyline was great.  I found the middle of the book to be a little boring, and lost some interest in the book.  I’m glad I finished the book though because the last few chapters were completely unexpected.  So glad the author emphasized peace with God being true peace!  I am giving the book an A – not a must read, but good for a lazy day, pajamas, and a crackling fire. 

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
