Elva Cobb Martinabout this book: Georgia Ann is an exciting historic adventure and romance set in Charles Town and on the High Seas from the Barbary Coast in the Mediterranean to the Spice Islands west of New Guinea. Hero Captain Samuel Vargas finds the Spice Islands but soon longs for the sweetheart he left in Charles Town. To his dismay, he finds her ship traveling to England has been overtaken by Barbary pirates and all passengers, including Georgia Ann, taken as slaves to Tripoli. He must use all his wits and God's help to rescue her and sail back to Charles Town to find a happy new beginning.
Readers of Georgia Ann will not only enjoy a fast-moving, inspirational romance, they will also learn about the Barbary pirates who enslaved more whites than later nations enslaved blacks, and they'll learn about the history of spices.
The Spice Trade actually drove the world's economy for centuries and wars were fought over its control and the islands themselves.
One interesting historical tidbit has to do with the English fighting the Dutch over the control of nutmeg. England finally handed their island of Rhun over to the Dutch in exchange for a swampy trading post in North America, an unattractive property known then as New Amsterdam. Today it is Manhattan Island.
