Introduction |My name is Ellie and I attend school at one of the finest institutions of higher learning in all the world. My story is no different from any told by young women. And I wanted to share it with you, if only for the sheer inexorable brilliance of it. And rather than beginning the way any other tale might, let me start with a query, a ponder if you will. For how do you, indeed how can you, start each and every day, in bliss?.. How do you face the day, when each and every day starts with your every higher desire being stroked, your every yearning fed, how do you then get out of bed and get on with it?
Jacky Faber makes waves, even when docked in her adopted city of Boston to attend to the business of Faber Shipping Worldwide. With big dreams and perhaps too much exuberance for the Puritan populace, she quickly finds herself at odds with the Women's Temperance Union and a town roiling over the arrival of hundreds of Irish labourers, brought in on Jacky's Lorelei Lee. Thwarted at every turn by her enemies, Jacky is forced to acknowledge her shortcomings-and possibly lose her beloved Jaimy Fletcher. In this new instalment in the ever-popular Bloody Jack Adventures, will the impulsive Jacky Faber finally get her comeuppance? AGES: 14 up AUTHOR: L. A. Meyer is the acclaimed writer of the Bloody Jack Adventures series, which follows the exploits of an impetuous heroine who has fought her way up from the squalid streets of London to become an adventurer of the highest order.
