Book summary: Pirate Queen

1991 BY DIANA NORMAN

Streetwise, light-fingered, Barbary Clampett, whose survival has been filched out of other people's pockets, is wrenched from the stews of London to be groomed 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 realization that the piracy of the indomitable Grace O'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 colorful background of the Elizabethan age.
