Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the brig Amaryllis was swallowed in a hurricane, the captain and all the crew were swallowed, too. For thirty years the captain's widow, Geneva Reade, has waited, certain that her husband will send her a message from the bottom of the sea. But someone else is waiting, too, and watching her, a man called Seward. Into this haunted situation comes Jenny, the widow's granddaughter. The three of them, Gran, Jenny, and Seward, are drawn into a kind of deadly game with one another and with the sea, a game that only the sea knows how to win.

Synopsis:

"Geneva Reade goes to visit her grandmother's ocean-side cabin and is drawn into the old woman's thirty-year-long struggle to wrest a supernatural message from the depths of the sea." --The New York Times Book Review

This was a fantastic book. It had a dark secret and a fantastic plot. I loved all of the action and the way you made people feel part of the book. SEWARDS WARNING the prologue shouldn't be a prologue but a chapter because most people don't read the prologue. I am only in Grade 6 but I cannot wait to read all of your other books including Tuck Everlasting. Thank- you for writing such a fantastic and mysterious book for me to read. Grade 6. 11 years old Emily
