Abby and Doc have "broken" history, and now important figures are starting to roam through time to try new things.  Would you believe that Abigail Adams would trade being First Lady of the United States for life as a pirate?  But when Abby and Doc follow her to the 1700s and the Golden Age of Pirates to bring her back to her own time, Abigail Adams isn't sure she wants to return.  After all, she has more rights as a pirate than as a woman in the 1800s, even a woman married to the president.  Will history be changed forever?  One of a fast-paced adventure series that presents history creatively and accurately!
