Read full description of the books:
treetwise, light-fingered, Barbary Clampett, whose survival has been filched out of other people's pockets, is wrenched from the stews of London to be grumed as the long-lost heir. But Barbary has a secret ...and the woman who eventually goes to Ireland on the Queen's treasure hunt has allegiance only to herself.
Caught up in the massacres, cruelty and beauty of Ireland, however she is,allowed no neutrality. Besides, she falls in love and becomes drawn into the last great rebellion led by Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, and the realisation that the piracy of the indomitable Grace 0'Malley is outweighed by the piracy of England's Queen Elizabeth.
THE PIRATE QUEEN is the powerful story of a woman and a country fighting for the freedom that is rightfully theirs, set against the vivid and colourful background of the Elizabethan age.

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the GoodReads database with this name. Ariana Franklin.
Born Mary Diana Narracott, she grew up first in London and then in Devon, where her mother took her to escape the blitz. At the age of 15, she left school, but with journalism in her background (her father had been a Times correspondent)and her hardy intelligence, the lack of formal education proved no barrier and by 17 she was n London, working on a local newspaper in the East End.
Headhunted at 20 by the Daily Herald, Norman became the youngest reporter on Fleet Street, covering royal visits, donning camouflage to go on exercise with the Royal Marines, and missing her 21st birthday party because she was covering a murder on the south coast. When she protested about this to the news editor, she was told: "Many happy returns. Now get down to Southampton." Diana Norman became, at twenty years of age, the youngest reporter on what used to be Fleet Street.
She married the film critic Barry Norman in 1957, and they settled in Hertfordshire with their two daughters. She began writing fiction shortly after her second daughter was born. Her first book of fiction, Fitzempress's Law, was chosen by Frank Delaney of BBC Radio 4's Bookshelf as the best example of a historical novel of its year. She is now a freelance journalist, as well as a writer of biographies and historical novels.
She died at the age of 77 on January 27, 2011. She was best known for her historical crime series featuring the 12th-century medical examiner Adelia Aguilar, written under the pen name of Ariana Franklin. The first book in the series, Mistress of the Art of Death, was published to critical acclaim in 2007 and won the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger award in the UK, as well as prizes in the US and Sweden.
Norman is survived by her husband, their daughters, Samantha and Emma, and three grandsons. Mr. Norman wrote a wonderful tribute to his wife.
