    Just a lovely book!
    I would recommend this book to anyone as it has something to offer a reader at many different levels. Family, romance, Hollywood, Jamaica, and the areas where they connect. I was apprehensive about writing a review, but this book made it easy. Please grab a copy!

    Hooray for Cezair-Thompson
    I can hardly wait to hear from Margaret Cezair-Thompson again. I was delighted to read a book in which I enjoyed the main characters. I did not always like what they did but I still liked them The supporting characters lent such a wonderful and sometimes frightening background. This is a book not only about mothers and daughters but parents and children. The choices made always bring unexpected results. This is a real page-turner. Enjoy!

    Was hoping for more
    I was disappointed in the book. While I thought it started out strong, with a vivid picture of Jamaica, and strong characters, I ultimately found the characters unconvincing and the dialogue weak.
  • Barb (Mechanicsburg PA)


    Very good
    I just finished The Pirate's Daughter, and I'm still thinking about the characters and the story. To me, that's always the sign of a good book. I learned a lot about Jamaica and its history, and the writing painted vivid pictures in my mind of the island, the people, the music... I had a hard time putting the book down.
  • Phoenix (Eclectic AL)


    Movie stars, pirates and treasures, oh, my!
    This was a thrilling read. It transports you to Jamaica at the glamorous time of Flynn and Monroe and brings you a vision of a young girl's future. We see May transform from a disillusioned tomboy who never gets a chance to have a relationship with her father to a caring and compasionate young woman.

    It is a vacation in Jamaica with a taste of political change and exciting characters. If you are very still, you can feel the breeze and hear the reggae music.

    Don't miss this brilliant novel.
  • Karla (Dana Point CA)


    Cezair-Thompson has a hit!
    The struggle for Jamaica's independence and the mother/daughter give and take seemed parallel. Cezair-Thompson's descriptions of the island and it's inhabitants are wonderful. I felt I was a close observer. All the characters were well developed. What a pleasure to read.
  • Kathy (Richmond VA)


    Excellent - didn't want to put it down
    I SO enjoyed this book. I thought the premise was intriguing (Errol Flynn fathering a child in Jamaica), although Flynn is not the main character, and actually, comes off as sort of a self-absorbed, pitiful character. the book was rich with details about Jamaica, of which I know little. I always enjoy multi-generational tales, especially ones that take me to another time and place. I found myself thinking about the characters when I wasn't reading, and didn't want the book to end. I enjoyed the dialogue and even if I didn't like all the characters, I came to care about them. I don't know that I would have picked the book on my own, so I really appreciated the opportunity to read and comment on it.
