Summary

Thirteen year old Fortune has to leave her family home when she is accused of witchcraft, but becomes caught up in the 1607 flood in southwest England

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...

NOTE : Some of the witch-hunting scenes are quite disturbing in places, as is the description of the devastation and dead bodies after the tsunami. You may wish to prefer shelving in teen rather than junior collections
