Audible Editor Reviews

Imagine Lindsay Lohan getting kidnapped by pirates and taken off to sea. At the dawn of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s decade, the Roaring ‘20s, the young prose stylist published "The Offshore Pirate" in the Saturday Evening Post. Performed by Cindy Hardin Killavey in the wild characterizations of a children’s tale, the small saga belongs to Ardita Farnam, an insouciant, precocious 19-year-old with a "spoiled, alluring mouth and quick gray eyes full of a radiant curiosity".

Like many a Fitzgerald heroine to follow, Ardita is smart, bored, stubborn, and primed for a fall. A charming tale for a slow afternoon, "The Offshore Pirate" gives the listener a satisfying cruise with a budding master.

Publisher's Summary

What happens when an "always gets her own way" young heiress is kidnapped by a "pirate" and his motley crew then spirited away to a hidden island? Return to the days of ragtime, riches and wall street royalty in this classic tale of the "poor little rich girl" and her "bad boy" sweetheart. A delightful re-telling of the girl meets boy scenario with an "O Henry" twist.
