    Amazing!

    I had the privilege of reading Stolen before publication. The title of this novel is appropriate in so many ways - this is a story of loss; slavery, of both whites and blacks. It's about love lost, friendships shattered, families torn apart. But it's also the story of triumph over unbearable hardship. The characters are well developed and the story is utterly and completely anchored in truth. Ms. Dalton may have written a work of fiction, but she's done her homework. While reading Stolen, we are not just entertained, but educated. This is a novel worth reading, and I never 'say' that lightly.

    Literary with adventure

    This is a wonderful blend of adventure and historical fact, yet avoids the trap of becoming either a bodice ripper or overly sentimental. It's a story very based in the 'real' world but still entertaining.

    Great historical read

    Sheila Dalton’s new book is an entertaining historical romp through the dark, cruel and perilous world of piracy in the 17th century. Its protagonist is an English woman who, through sheer force of will, manages to navigate a world in which possibilities seem hopelessly proscribed and yet she still finds her way. Issues of gender and class wend their way through the novel and give it a contemporary feel. Her heroine has the air about her of Laurie King’s proto-feminist heroine, Mary Holmes. There is romance and adventure, but always on the terms of the heroine even though at times the situations in which she finds herself seem impossible. Much recommended.
