Book Review: Saltblood

by Francesca De Tores
Review by Kazia

This tale of self-discovery and yearning set in the Golden Age of Piracy had me utterly engrossed. De Tores writes with such atmospheric pull that it is easy to imagine yourself at sea. The care shown with the characters, both of her own creation and those gleaned from the historical record, renders them captivating without romanticising. A wholly immersive read and a fascinating insight into pirate life! Great for fans of other woman-centric historical fiction, like Disobedient by Elizabeth Fremantle.
