“A truly swashbuckling tale yet also remarkably historically accurate, Captain Hale's Covenant is a page-turner novel written the way they ought to be. Part C.S. Forester and part Patrick O’Brian, it is tailor-made for a splendid movie or TV series.” Andrew Roberts, author of Napoleon: A Life
“Make room on your shelves -- next to Patrick O'Brian's nautical novels -- for Captain Hale's Covenant, a stirring American tale of the battles in the North Atlantic in the decades after America won its independence. Thomas Crocker brings you the snap of the sails and the wind singing through the rigging while you taste the salt air and marvel at the adventures of Adam Hale and his family.” David O. Stewart, author of The New Land, Book 1 of the Overstreet Saga trilogy
“Spanning from 1783 to 1822, this multi-generational novel is both a sentimental family saga and a rip-roaring, action-filled adventure of sailing ship battles in the Atlantic... There were a few historical anecdotes which surprised and fascinated … especially as to the importance of Maine in trade and commerce at the time—it’s a very interesting period, when an infant country was just beginning to spread its wings. Recommended.” Historical Novel Society
"Thomas Crocker has written an epic American novel... paints a brilliant picture of one man's triumphs and tragedies at sea and ashore while living the American experience." Quarterdeck Magazine
