‘Lafitte Lives’ By Christi Sumich

In bustling, multicultural New Orleans in August 1831, the sexton of St. Louis Cemetery No. 2, Tobias Whitney, discovers a mysterious journal hidden within the tomb of Dominique You, a reputed war hero and privateer. Intrigued by the possibility of adventure and treasure, Tobias enlists the help of his beloved but irascible wife, Mary Catherine, to translate the text from French into English. As they delve into the journal’s contents, they uncover the remarkable life of Jean Lafitte, a legendary privateer and Dominique You’s half brother, as well as further mysteries that will forever change their lives. But can they trust the contents of the journal? As Dominique himself writes, Never trust a pirate! Secrets can’t stay hidden forever, but maybe some secrets should. Lafitte Lives is a consummately researched novel that takes history, as well its gaps and legends, and transforms them into a fascinating tale that vividly brings the adventures of Jean Lafitte to life.
