Hard Bound With a Jacket
When Wajeeha Narayan was taken from the harem in the palace of Koch Behar India to be sold as a slave, she knew she had to do what she must to survive. Reinventing herself as Queen, a tough sea-loving pirate, she mastered the whip, sparking fear in her enemies, until tragedy struck.
Found washed ashore by Father Samuel Fritz, Queen joined him in his work to save the souls of the tribes found along the Amazon river. When he becomes ill, Queen is caught in a dangerous web of intrigue and must appeal to the kings of Portugal and Spain to save him.
Years later, to right the wrongs of her past, she parts with Father Samuel only to end up back on the high seas and then in England and the court of Queen Anne.
Unhappy in England, Queen traveled to the American colonies where she lived and worked at the Catholic missions in Maryland.
As a free woman of color in a world of slavery, she remained a bastion of strength, instilling her hard won courage and wisdom in her children. When they are brutalized and their freedom is claimed by Father Ashton and the Catholic church, will they find the strength to fight and proclaim the legacy of freedom left to them by their mother?
