Book Review: Ancient Mariners By David Burton
Reviewed By Barbara Ann Cerda
Death follows the Montegar
There’s a very old movie I loved as a child about the Flying Dutchman. The ghost ship that sails the world never to find its rest in a safe harbor.
This is a tidy little tale that mimics that sentiment. In this transformation, the compelling characterizations are a lonely young girl born to sail, and a man fated to endure a broken heart and solitude. The telling of the perils, adventures, cruelties and lost love makes for a compelling read.
The story is filled with exciting fight scenes and heart shredding pathos of death and loss.
Silas Tufts Once a Navy SEAL, only the seas seem to be home to his heartbreak after losing wife and daughter. Then the daughter of an old friend manages to fill a void that no one else can.
Beth Portman, she lost her family before becoming an adult. The one friend she adopted as family is Silas. Together they survive broken hearts, lost loves and pirates.
This work has a very good story in it – but it’s needful of formatting and editing. Good editors can create great authors.
