Upon discovery of a rare antique box, Sarafina uncovers an ancient spyglass that transports her back to the 18th-century where she meets scallywags bearing cutlasses, who sail aboard tall ships that bear an unusual black flag. But when she is suddenly kidnapped, she must quickly use her cunning to survive the adventures of the Spanish Main before the spyglass is lost and she is forced to live the rest of her life at sea as a pirate.


  1. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved it. The way Jaye captured the imagination of a young girl with a simple spyglass! Awesome story , kept you wanting not to put it down! I recommend this for anyone that has a young girl. Why? Girls have so few heroines they can look up to. Sarafina, gives us just that ! I sure hope Sarafina goes on many awesome adventures with her awesome spyglass! I think every girl young and old will love this girl’s adventure ! I love how she started in the now. Sarafina, does have to watch her words as she speaks. Which makes her very interesting to whoever is reading about her. She does meet some dears as well as few savory characters. Best of luck to JAYE HELM she makes the reader want MORE!
