WINNER OF THE ESSENCE LITERARY AWARD IN FICTION In 1946, Hollywoods 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 Pirates Daughterimagines an affair between the aging matinee star and Ida, a beautiful local girl. Flynns affections are unpredictable but that doesnt 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.
