Secrets of The Realm

SECRETS OF THE REALM

Secrets_of_the_Realm_coverSynopsis: Blamed for her uncle’s death, fifteen-year-old Annie is on the run. Knowing the dangers she will face on the streets of eighteenth century London, Annie disguises herself as a boy.

Her life changes course when she becomes Captain Hawke’s cabin boy. Not only must Annie work along side the Realm’s motley crew of outcasts and gentlemen, she must also keep her superstitious shipmates from discovering she is a girl.

Annie vows she will never leave the Realm, where dreams are chased, shattered lives can mend, and secrets are stowed like keepsakes in an old desk drawer. But when Annie’s past catches up with her, can she stay on the Realm? More importantly, will she have a choice?
