Off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1952 fierce winds force a small boat into port. The boat’s pilot, an eccentric old sea captain, takes residence at a small inn run by young Jim and his mother. The captain’s presence soon becomes invaluable–and Jim and his mother will never be the same again. But who is this odd and mysterious man who tells such engrossing and detailed stories about pirates, whom he likes to call “the Brotherhood of the Sea”?

Not only is this an engrossing and mysterious story, but also raises great questions about right and wrong. I learned a lot about pirates!

"I liked it" - my seven-year old.

BO-RING. Seriously, nothing happened except the old guy blowing up a poor dog (this alone should be enough to disinterest you in reading this book) and telling these boring stories that would be best told in history class. I give it one star for the pretty cover which, though I haven't read the whole book, does not seem to be related in any way with the contents. If you're looking for a book with lots of adventure, I recommend you leave this one on the library shelf and read some books actually worth your attention, for example Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld, or The lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.
