The End of Calico Jack on Speak UP! - A Short Audiobook Sample

Christian Devotions SPEAK UP!

2020 Selah Award Winner for YA LiteratureWhile searching for rumored treasure in a cave on Coffin Cay, a small island off the southwestern tip of Haiti (Hispaniola), Ricky suffers an absence seizure. During his last trance-like episode, Ricky uncovered a treasure from the Nuestra Señora de Riqueza, a vessel in an armada of ships sailing the Spanish Main. Now back on Coffin Cay with his parents, Ricky hunts for the treasure he found in the cave over three hundred years earlier during his trip back to pirate land.The End of Calico Jack is a fictional retelling of the pirate escapades of Calico Jack, Anne Bonny, and Mary Read. The story is based on historical research of the life of "Calico Jack" John Rackham. Some liberties have been taken in the telling of the story, but many of the events reflect what historians believed happened to Jack, Mary, and Anne.  Also, in real life those who suffer absence seizures may appear to be in a trance but cannot recall what happens during their episode. Get the audiobook online:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08NVQ36FQ/ http://www.audible.com/pd?asin=B08NVR1L9NListen to this audiobook for free! at audible.com/acx-promo with these promo codes:US codes:GSAJ9MYB827A5U4YMS2HU3SAAZUUBRY36HBBH4PWDDBA3234NK97UK codes:RP8DARKW4ZRJRWND2DAZZJXQELYXDHQAKHX3Y2XZA7FAYCK97D9LZSQWC5UN5GR7W
