The epic account of the life of Beverly Bethany Quinn. A most incredible life and tragic end begins in 1915 as BB Quinn receives a call from the British Crown saying she is in possession of a cache of arms stored in her sugar mill warehouse in Cuba. An era she thought long past is resurrected in the last "special cargo" shipment to England to aid the allies in WWI. In preparation for the trip, she re-reads her mother's and Dr. Perkins diaries which brings us to that fate-filled day in 1863 and takes us on a journey we will never forget...

    From page one, I was drawn into the life of BB Quinn. Immediately, there was the vision of a montage of Scout, Scarlet O’Hara and Elizabeth Swann; a spunky, gorgeous, raven-haired, green-eyed Tom-boy who never had ‘can’t’ in her vocabulary. Raised by Negro nannies and men of stature (a doctor and a gun-runner), she learned her manners as well as how to handle guns and men; both of which she would never really trust. You could not help but cheer her on and keep turning pages. I craved more at the end, but I won’t have to wait long. The sequel, The Last Quinn Standing, will be out soon. This is a book I will purchase and give as gifts for years to come. Bravo!
