page 63 of 279 of A High Wind in Jamaica

This is actually a re-read for me since I read this many, many years ago and always remember really enjoying it.

What’s funny is how much of it I forgot, and right from the start too. The earthquake I had totally forgotten and honestly I only dimly remember the great hurricane.

Pirates, however, I do remember and this is a great spin on the pirate story – a literary, Conrad-esque high-seas yarn.
