The Freedom MerchantsBook - 2013
A riveting tale of piracy and slavery set in Ireland and North Africa in the early 1600s. Twenty-five years previously, young Liam's small fishing village on the Irish coast was raided by brutal pirates from the Barbary Coast who killed, plundered and took a number of his people back to northern Africa to serve as slaves to Muslim masters. And now a pirate ship has been wrecked in Liam's bay, and survivors are struggling ashore.
