When your family rejects you and tries to control your life, how can you fight back?

Rusty’s life is blown apart when her father deserts the family to search for diamonds in Africa.  Forced to live in a Canadian fishing village, will this New York City teen die from boredom or die in the unforgiving sea?

After stealing a boat, Rusty becomes entangled in a feud, which escalates into criminal activity.  Will a pirate treasure offer salvation, or will its curse doom them? 


About the Author

Cathy Eaton spent many summers with her grandfather in Deep Cove, Nova Scotia, the place that always renews and invigorates her heart. So it was only natural that she set her first novel in Nova Scotia where she swam, canoed, fished, hiked and picnicked on many of the islands of Mahone Bay with family and friends.

She continued her outdoor adventures riding competitively and skiing with her family. In high school she received the short story writing award. While studying literature at Smith College and later at Bread Loaf School of English and Oxford University, she thoroughly enjoyed her travels across the United States, Eastern Europe, Australia, West Africa and Great Britain.

She began Curse of the Pirate’s Treasure in Asheville, North Carolina while teaching at the University of North Carolina and raising her sons Colin and Devon. The family settled in New Hampshire where she teaches fiction writing at New Hampshire Technical Institute, kayaks, and cross country skis. With husband Michael, the family vacations at Conway Lake where they continue to participate in water adventures and realize the energized peace of her childhood summers in Nova Scotia.
