When I was in Ireland I visited the castle of Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen, but the book I read with the same name is not about Grace O’Malley.
The Pirate Queen by Patricia Hickman is the story of a woman, who being quite wealthy feels very poor. She doesn’t believe her husband loves her and is in general very dissatisfied with her life. She decides to leave her husband and live in their vacation home. The day she has chosen to leave her husband tells her he is dying. She realizes she can’t leave him and so they both go to their vacation home.
The story is about their last summer together and how she cared for her husband and in the process realized he did love her and she still loved him.
If you are looking for a good story, that isn’t predictable, you will love this book!
