Against A Dark Shore

by Christopher Kenworthy

The hard-fought Anglo-American War of 1812 has ended.

And in its bitter aftermath, the merchant adventurer Matthew Milburn, born English but forced by circumstances to become an American, is desperately trying to repair his fortunes.

But fate is against him.

A chance remark at a Governor’s reception makes an enemy out of the influential Commander Anthony Craig.

Fleeing from Craig, Matthew runs into the first flaring of a slave uprising among the plantations of the Bahamas.

It needs only the challenge of the treacherous agitator de Gonaives, a Haitian bent on driving the British from the Bahamas, to involve Matthew and his crew in a desperate struggle to save an entrancing young girl and her family from a terrible fate.

And this beautiful haven is about to become a cold-blooded death trap.

Written against the sultry background of early 19th-century Caribbean, this is the fourth novel in the continuing story of Matthew and Son, the Savannah shippers.

‘Against A Dark Shore’ is the action-packed sequel to ‘In The Dark Of The Moon’ and ‘Ride The Dark Tide’: an enthralling adventure story set against the violent backdrop of 19th-century warfare and piracy.

It is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, Alexander Kent, and CS Forrester.

“I could taste the salt and smell the wind on every page. A brilliant read.’ – Tom Kasey, best-selling author of ‘The Dante Code’.

Christopher Kenworthy was a journalist and novelist.

Jailbreak out of History: the re-biography of Harriet Tubman

by Butch Lee

Crucial revisionist herstory, firmly rerooting Harriet Tubman in the context of patriarchy, race, class, and armed struggle. A fascinating, and much needed examination of the woman and her times. Her juxtaposition vis a vis the pro-American patriarch John Brown in particular is a great read. At a time when violence against women of color is at the center of world politics, uncovering the censored story of one Amazon points to answers that have nothing to do with government programs, police, or patriarchal politics.
