The Author is a descendant of Dick Brown, one of the infamous Captain Flint’s crew. She is very curious about the man she knew as a respected minister.
Dick Brown led a very adventurous life before finding respectability as a clergyman. He wants his daughter to know how he became Richard Brown and a bit about her own family.
A young pirate has the adventure of his life searching for Captain Flint’s treasure. This is a retelling of Treasure Island through the recollections of a much older and wiser Dick Brown with the additional story of what happened to him after.
I really enjoyed this adventure tale. I was a bit skeptical at first believing that no one could add to or improve on Treasure Island, but I was mistaken. The author does a great job of telling the story from another angle and continuing on after the original story ends. I have always enjoyed family stories and this reads just like one as it is written from a father to his daughter. It just seems so much more personal written in this style. The plot and the characters are very well done and this one will be difficult for you to put down.
