Summary Excerpt Comments

Shannon Clarke raised a family and worked waterfront jobs in America's oldest seaport. Her childhood dream to become a sea captain is revived when her long-lost seafaring uncle Patrick visits with a salty tale of their maritime family ancestry of pirates and privateers. He shares recovered family letters and artifacts from the Golden Age of Piracy. They take to the sea in Patrick's brigantine to follow the siren song of their ancestors in quest of destiny, truth and treasure. The voyage is fraught with raw forces of nature, past traumas and present day sea robbers, as their talents and beliefs of family, identity and purpose are shaken to the core.

Praise for Beyond Beauport:
"If you like adventure, Caribbean seas and family intrigue, you'll surely enjoy this tale." --Katherine A. Sherbrooke, author of Fill the Sky

" . . . a fast-moving read that keeps you on edge page after page!" --Ron Gilson, author of An Island No More

"Loaded to the scuppers with history and intrigue, Beyond Beauport fastens a shackle to the heartstrings of the pirate in all of us, then pulls along in its powerful riptide of adventure! Bravo!" --Jim Tarantino, Gloucester doryman

"Full of history, geography, maritime life, storms, and recipes, Masciarelli has created an exciting tale of today's woman at one with the sea." -- JoeAnn Hart, author of Float

"James Masciarelli's mastery of plot, suspense, pacing, dialogue and story belies any sense that Beyond Beauport is his first novel. The history that frames this gripping narrative is impeccable. Embarking on this adventure with such appealing characters offers a pleasure that only the most well-crafted novels can provide." --Peter Anastas, author of At the Cut

"Paddy and Shannon have room for one more mate on the Second Wind, and you have permission to board. You might want to keep that life jacket close by--the waters are a little rough ahead." --John Dufresne, author of I Don't Like Where This Is Going

"James Masciarelli has crafted a unique contribution to American letters, an adventure saga that is sweeping in scope yet intensely personal. Masciarelli writes of time, place and history, and in the process has woven a lasting work that speaks to discovery that is both epic in scope and deeply personal." --Greg Fields, author of Arc of the Comet
