Earl LeClaire | Atherton Hawke, novel
Atherton Hawke, novel
The book, Atherton Hawke, is awash with historical facts and details. It tells the story of an English privateer, knighted by King Charles I, for service in the English Navy, his time as a privateer, and his struggle to establish a life in New England, with his mixed race female companion, Lolly Jones, during the early 1600's. A volatile series of events touches off a war between Atherton Hawke and the Plymouth settlement. The lifetime bond between Hawke and his companion is malevolently tested when she is kidnapped and sold to a slaver whose ship is bound for Jamaica. Threaded throughout with love, sacrifice, and justice, the narrative in Atherton Hawke remains true to the time, and divulges a brutality often overlooked in British and American history.
