A True Account by Katherine Howe

Staff Pick

Desperate to be the lead in her own life, Hannah Masury deserts her pre-revolutionary Boston life on a whim. After hearing of a treasure waiting in the Caribbean, she disguises herself as a cabin boy and makes her way on board a pirate ship headed south. In 1930, Professor Marian Beresford comes across Hannah’s account of her journey and, finding companionship among the pages, follows in her footsteps. Hoping to uncover the treasure Hannah may have left behind, Marian is in for more than she bargained for when her own team comes up empty-handed. Howe’s meticulous research and impeccable storytelling deliver a compelling page-turner rooted in history, legend, and girl power.
