It is May 1704, and we are at sea just off the east coast of Scotland….
“James Lightfoot didn’t want to be put ashore at Figgate Whins. It was a dangerous place. He might be robbed of his remaining few possessions. He waited on the deck of the merchantman while the crew loaded bundles onto the boat: probably luxury goods to be smuggled into England. The ship’s legitimate cargo was bound for Leith.” Joan Dunnett, Tides of Change
Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
Pirates, spies, danger, and Scotland are all found in my current read, “Tides of Change.”
You will be happy to know that I am heading over to Edinburgh, Scotland today to meet up with Joan Dunnett, the author of “Tides of Change.” We are going back in time, so take a warm coat and be prepared for an extraordinary journey. But first, put the kettle on and add to the conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia. I am your host Rebecca Budd and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Joan and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. Thank you, Joan, for sharing your love of history and storytelling. And a shout out to my dear blogger friend and frequent podcast guest, Liz Humphreys, from “Leaping Life” who recommended, “Tides of Change.” I am adding my recommendation to Liz’s and invite you to meet up with Joan Dunnett on Goodreads. You are only an internet click away from being swept away on a daring adventure. Until next time we meet, be safe and be well.
