Sharpe and Nancy Kington, Female Pirates by Celia Rees After her father’s death, Nancy Kington is shipped to Jamaica and caught in a trap layed by her brothers, her father, and the Brazilian they have chosen as her husband. In 1722, men decide and women obey, all except Miss Kington who escapes into the Jamaican mountains with her slave friend, Minerva Sharpe. To avoid capture by the Brazilian, they leave Jamaica and go on the account. Nancy’s great sadness is her loss of William, her true love, who is in the Royal Navy. Nancy’s plight worsens when William’s soldiers pursue, capture and threaten to hang Nancy and her pirate shipmates. Life as a pirate is difficult enough for Nancy and Minerva, but the two young women are also being pursued around the world by the cruel Brazilian, Captain Bartholome, who has resumed his piratical life and gives no quarter.
