In what is being called a “stunning” sequel to SPIRITED AWAY – A Novel of the Stolen Irish, Freddy O’Brennan is on the run. In 1656, determined to pursue freedom for themselves and their young children, Freddy and her friend Birdie, a Monacan native from Virginia, brave stormy seas, treacherous castaways, and corrupt colonial authorities in Jamestown. Romantic sparks between Freddy and ship Captain Colin Shea Brophy smolder and threaten to explode. As they venture further into the James River wilderness, Freddy and Birdie navigate a choking gauntlet of ruthless slave catchers, frontier bounty hunters, warring natives, and a Cherokee renegade out for blood. DARING PASSAGE: Book Two of the Spirited Away Saga is a 70,000-word historical novel that captures a rare glimpse into seventeenth century colonial Virginia.
In May 1653, young Frederica (Freddy) O’Brennan and her sister Aileen trust a stranger on an empty beach in western Ireland, inadvertently placing themselves in the crosshairs of Cromwell’s notorious Reign of Terror. Freddy awakens in the crammed hold of a slave ship bound for Barbados. She and Aileen endure the gruesome voyage only to be wrenched apart when purchased at auction by sugar plantation owners from different islands. Freddy is left alone to face the brutal realities of life as a female Irish slave on a seventeenth century Barbados plantation. As she struggles to survive, her harrowing experiences paint an intimate, compelling portrait of 1650s Irish and African slavery in the Caribbean.
