Nancy Caldwell relocates to an old sea captain's house on Cape Cod with her husband and four children. When she discovers an abandoned root cellar in her backyard containing a baby's skull and gold coins, she digs up evidence that links her land to the legendary tale of Maria Hallett and her pirate lover, Sam Bellamy. Using alternating chapters between the 18th and 21st centuries, The Old Cape House, a historical fiction, follows two women that are lifetimes apart, to uncover a mystery that has had the old salts of Cape Cod guessing for 300 years. 2014 Winner ~ First Place in Historical Fiction ~ Royal Dragonfly Awards!About the Author:
When the author and her husband Tim, a professional artist, turned forty in the late 1980s, they moved with their three teenagers from Ohio to Cape Cod into a sea captain's house, circa 1880. The Cape's history and brilliant natural light drew them in; this was a place where Tim would paint and Barbara could write. A storyteller at heart, Barbara's imagination took flight after she unearthed a mysterious pattern of red bricks under ten inches of soil behind her barn, and found a beautiful blue-flowered pottery shard on the tidal flats of Brewster. She conjured up a connection to an old Cape legend about Maria Hallett and her pirate lover Sam Bellamy, captain of the wrecked ship The Wyhdah. These unanticipated events catapulted Barbara onto a journey that led to the writing of The Old Cape House, "First Place - Historical Fiction, Royal Dragonfly Awards 2014", The Old Cape Teapot and subsequent stories. She is an International Best Selling Author, a Member in Letters of the National League of American Pen Women, International Thriller Writers, Sisters In Crime, and board member of Cape Cod Writers Center. Always a journal writer, she is fascinated by history and writes a blog about the unique facts and myths of Cape Cod.
