Synopsis

Cape Flattery is a historical novel set in the early 1800’s and centered around two courageous young women, Anna Teichroew and Tatiana Nikolayevna. Both characters are fictional portrayals of real people, the author’s great-grandmother who lived in a Mennonite village in southern Russia, and Anna Petrovna, the aristocratic wife of a Russian naval captain. She was the first white woman to step onto the shores of the Pacific Northwest. Intertwined with their stories is the Irish-American sea captain, Sean O’Connell. The numerous settings sweep from the steppes of the Ukraine to the palaces of St. Petersburg, Russia, from the poor Irish tenements of Boston across stormy oceans to the grandeur of Russian Alaska. The various plots twist and turn among many characters, but draw towards a dramatic climax after a shipwreck on the rocky coast of Washington State where Anna, Tatiana, and Sean meet their ultimate fates among the savage Quileute and Makah tribes living near Cape Flattery on the Olympic Peninsula.
