内容紹介

The preacher warned that Port Royal, the largest English-speaking city in the New World, was so wrought with sin that one day, God would destroy it like Sodom and Gomorrah. But the capital of seventeenth century Jamaica and home to the most notorious pirates of the Caribbean enjoyed its reputation as Sin City. In 1692, the sea opened up and swallowed Port Royal.

Taken Aback is a story of the burgeoning colonies of the New World as seen through the eyes of three unforgettable people. At fifteen, Sally Montague is anticipating her debut in England’s West Country aristocracy, but instead she and her younger brother, James, are swept across the Atlantic to a sugar plantation in Nevis. Denied his heritage by England’s civil war, Captain Edward Waller is obsessed with the belief that his businesses in Massachusetts will restore his name and fortune for the sake of a woman he is obliged to keep and another that he cannot have. The three struggle to survive in colonies fraught with perils from man and nature – hurricanes, wars, droughts, plagues, floods, revolts, corruption and betrayals. Through entangled romance, confused passions and determination, Sally cuts an existence from the land. James, lured by the promise of quick riches through sanctioned thievery, follows the Brotherhood to life as a buccaneer, while Edward commits to building the infamous Golden Triangle of trade. This is a novel infused with actual events and authentic characters, a fascinating blend of truth and fiction, and an adventurous journey of discovery and conquest of land and emotion.

著者について

Deborah Tuite was born in 1950 and grew up in America. She studied biology before serving in Peace Corps in Africa. She met her British husband in Kenya and returned with him to England. After the birth of their second child the family moved to America where Deborah enjoyed a varied career in field biology, healthcare, and teaching. She did a Master's degree in education and taught science until becoming a full time writer in 2012. During the holidays, Deborah and the boys accompanied her husband on his conservation adventures in East Africa, Congo, and the Caribbean. Today she and her husband live along the Avon River in Wiltshire, England. When she was eight, Deborah wrote her first historical story in pencil on a school tablet. Her family and career kept her busy throughout her life, but she continued to write short stories, plays, and science-related articles. While living in Cape Cod, she won two writing awards for her short stories. In 2007, she took time off from teaching to be the lead writer for a National Geographic education project.
