Synopsis

The Street of Knives Windjammer III by V. A. Richardson

Adam and Jade are approaching seventeen. Both have lost fathers and both have found themselves shouldering huge responsibility. Adam is running Quadrant Shipping and Trading Company, while Jade has successfully taken on her father's moneylending business. They have shown themselves capable and bright, but when it comes to working together, their pride takes over, tempers flare and neither will budge. Then Adam is approached with a lucrative but shadowy proposition. Their relationship in tatters, he chooses not to tell Jade and brings them both into terrible danger.

Reviews

Praise for The Moneylender's Daughter: 'Themes of women's emancipation and the conflicting demands of duty, loyalty and desire underpin this dramatic historical novel, the sequel to House of Windjammer. Both a tale of rumbustious sea-faring adventure and a tempestuous portrayal of families torn apart by loss and greed, this is a book with broad appeal whose rich historical detail is unostentatiously woven into its fabric.

,Guardian Education Praise for The House of Windjammer: 'a fast moving, page-turning adventure set in 17th century Amsterdam. All the activity and atmosphere of the harbour and surrounding canals are strongly conveyed and made me want to look again at the work of Dutch masters of the period.

'This book is a throwback to the more innocent days of historical adventure, and to that extent offers a change from today's more cynical teenage climate.'
