A teenage brother and sister playing on a beach along the Virginia coast discover a fully intact wooden figurehead from the sailing ships of old buried in the sand. Over twelve feet long and weighing almost three tons, the incredibly well-preserved figurehead is carved to resemble a gorgeous woman.
The woman’:s beauty, coupled with the mysterious markings carved into the folds of her dress, lead to the discovery that she once adorned the prow of The Avenger, a ship that went down more than three hundred years ago with more than eleven tons of gold and treasure aboard. Tourism in town explodes, and plans are developed to recreate The Avenger, with the figurehead on the bow.
While the town bubbles with excitement, few notice that the figurehead seems to be restoring itself. She’:s watching, observing, learning, and waiting. She’:s waited for centuries to hear someone speak the words that will set her free, and unleash her terrifying power.
A supernatural adventure tale spanning three centuries, Figurehead brings to life the great ships of Virginia in the 1600s, the men who sailed them, and the pirates who preyed on them in their quest for profit and treasure-laden holds. Leapfrogging from the past to the present, two tales intertwine to create a world where love transcends time, and legends are born.
