A fight for survival against torrential flooding and local superstition from the Queen of Historical Fiction.

A sinking boat . . .


A girl in disguise . . .


A disappearing sea . . .

 

When Fortune Sharpe carves a boat from a tree with her beloved brother, Gem, she’s only having a bit of fun. But now is not the time for a girl to be drawing attention to herself. She is sent away to find work dressed as a boy. Luckily a rich manor house is hiring.

 

Yet Barrow Hill’s inhabitants harbour dangerous secrets of their own, the suspicious owner is hunting for witches, and the house itself is a little too close to the sea . . .
