An American Privateer “is a gripping novel about a tenacious captain who leads his ship and crew on a gripping adventure


Michael J. Way, who grew up spending his free time on the water or in the woods exploring the islands, coves and coves of the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers, has completed his new book “Kestrel: An American Privateer”: a gripping novel follows Barlow as he leads Kestrel and his crew through treacherous encounters, battles, and storms. From Philadelphia to New York, Boston and back again, Barlow and his team interact with many important personalities and events of the time.

Author Michael J. Way writes: “Cold misty rain, so typical of the season, fell as Captain Jonathan Barlow walked down Spruce Street toward the Philadelphia waterfront. It was early March 1775, and the weather was the only thing typical of the city inundated with people jostling and jostling each other in anticipation of a likely war. Barlow himself was there as much, if not more, than the majority of his entourage, having just concluded a series of meetings with the principal actors of the drama which was unfolding along the east coast of the North American colonies. . “

Posted by Page Publishing, Michael J. Way’s gripping tale follows Barlow and his crew as they are suspected by the captain of a British man of war and face some hanging if found guilty. Only Barlow’s tenacity, coupled with a possible positive turn of events, could save them all from the vengeful reality of the hangman’s noose.
