Waterstones Says

The reigning queen of historical children’s literature returns with a characteristically classy narrative that brings the paranoia and superstitions of seventeenth-century England to full-blooded life. Sinister gentry and rumours of witchcraft blight the life of young Fortune Sharpe in this eerie tale based on real-life events.

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.
