Between the devil and the deep blue sea sparknotes
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve TucholkeYou stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…
Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town… until River West comes along. River rents the guest house behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard.
Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more?
Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery... who makes you want to kiss back.
Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.
Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.

Seventeen-year-old Violet White lives with her antagonistic twin brother, Luke, in an old mansion on the cliffs of a small, seaside village. Both the location of their house and their status as members of a prestigious family with old money leave Violet and Luke on the outskirts of town, but their family fortune is now virtually nonexistent, and their artistic parents are too busy painting their way across Europe. River is mysterious, charismatic and flashes a crooked smile that would make any girl starry-eyed. Despite his obscure background and an undeniable penchant for telling lies, River stirs within Violet feelings she has never had for any boy before.
Seamen, captains, and pirates occupy a special place in our popular culture, yet until now the historical record of their lives has been remarkably neglected. This brilliant account of the maritime world of the eighteenth-century reconstructs in detail the social and cultural milieu of Anglo-American seafaring and piracy. Rediker follows sailors and their ships along the pulsing trade routes, into ports with their crowded waterfront society of brothels, alehouses, brawls and jails, and paints a compelling picture of their world at sea with its brutal labour, harsh discipline, hangings and floggings. The book's focus on maritime experience illuminates the broader historical sweep of the rise of capitalism and the growth of an international working class - epic themes which were intimately bound up with everyday lives of seafaring men.
