Dashing and dangerous Andre Raveneau is the Revolutionary War's most reckless privateer captain when Devon Lindsay stows away aboard his ship after her Connecticut town has been burned by the British. Raveneau sardonically agrees to deliver her to her childhood sweetheart in Virginia but doesn't count on his own potent attraction to the enchanting, courageous Devon. Through high adventure, swashbuckling sea battles, and the colorful history of America's revolution, the couple battles the fiery passion that binds them together.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. The story captivates you from the start. The characters are unique, complex and unforgettable and you learn a little American history along the way!

What other book might you compare Silver Storm to and why?

Cynthia Wright is a master storyteller! Several of her other novels intertwine characters that began in Silver Storm, so when you fall in love with it, the feeling doesn't have to end.

What about Emily Beresford’s performance did you like?

It was my first audio book experience. Emily's interpretation of the characters were so close to how I felt about them in my own mind when I read the book, it was amazing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are many moving moments. I love how the heroine Devon is brave, gutsy and follows her heart, no matter what the consequences. You should experience the exciting ride yourself.

Any additional comments?

Cynthia Wright has been crafting compelling and interesting stories and characters for over 25 years and her books are just as revelant today. If you've not discovered this truly talented writer before, now is your chance.
