I picked this book up for $3 at the dollar store and figured I'd eventually get around to reading it. I picked it up one evening and started reading and I was very surprised at how quickly I became interested in the story. This is a wonderful book and a very easy read. I'd definitely read more by this author.

Props to Howe for marking a spot intersecting multiple creative wins. This story is not one period piece but two, and arguably three. The writing is approachable, yet I found myself looking up a few words that I'm now happy to have added to my vocabulary. It's rare to read a new interpretation on the swashbuckling pirate genre.

In 1930, Dr. Marian Beresford is presented with "A True Account..." by an undergraduate named Kay. Kay is, by all appearances, the polar opposite of Hannah, but even she is excited to pursue the story. They learn that after witnessing a brutal murder of a boy and now on the run, Hannah takes the name of Billy Chandler on a ship captained by the notorious Edward Low. She survives by being observant and adaptive, earning the trust of the crew. Hannah sees firsthand how brutal pirates really are, after they take a French ship called the Rose Pink. But as Billy, she participates in and falls into the life of a criminal at sea. But for Marian and Kay, the book is the only source for a possible treasure hidden somewhere in Key West...

When you tell someone to picture an 18th century woman in their mind, they see either an Abigail Adams or a Marie Antoinette. In reality, the majority of women were rough, hard working, and marginal, esp. the whalers' and sailors' wives of Boston. Also, the accuracy of the dialogue, the maritime terminology, and the setting made my little heart happy. Hannah Masury could've been written as "vivacious", gorgeous, or coquettishly rebellious. She is none of these and yet so much more. After all, a pretty smile and sweet behavior means nothing to the unforgiving ocean. True, I loved Hannah from the beginning but I grew to like Marian as well. Judgmental at first, she learns a valuable lesson about assumption but gets a well deserved, self-assuring confidence boost at end. Also, a nice dose of LGBTQ+ representation in this one! I've now read The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, The Penguin Book of Witches and now A True Account! Katherine Howe is definitely a must-have author for me. 🏴‍☠️

It took a bit for me to get into the book, but it was pretty good. Definitely something to read on a lazy weekend. There were some moments when you think "Oh, that was a dumb action to give your character," but overall better than I had expected!
