The story starts out as a great adventure on the open seas, with Mom as the captain of a ship on turbulent waters and her two young children supposedly safe below. After things are somewhat settled she tells the children a bedtime story of pirates and a group that was able to stay active on the seas - they are totally enthralled. It's very enchanting.

It then switches to eight years later in another place, and a young boy who is restless in his current situation. The story definitely draws you in to how this pirate story (and family) in the prologue will relate to this boy at the beginning of the story. The cover is beautiful, and gives you a hint about the culture and the fact that women will be a key factor in the plot.
