Summary, etc.:
In work of narrative nonfiction filled with romance and high seas adventure, a historian and journalist charts the life of Sarah Kidd, who secretly aided and abetted her infamous husband, pirate Captain Kidd, from within the strictures of polite society in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century New York.
Captain Kidd was one of the most notorious pirates to ever prowl the seas. Few know that he had an accomplice who enabled his plundering and helped him outpace his enemies: his wife, Sarah Kidd. Geanacopoulos reconstructs Sarah Kidd's life: Love, treasure, motherhood and survival. Sarah not only survived her husband, but went on to live a successful and productive life as one of New York's most prominent citizens. -- adapted from jacket
