Beyond the Bright Sea Summary

Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk

'Harper Lee has a worthy successor. Wolk is a big new talent' - The Times

Crow has lived her whole life on a tiny, starkly beautiful island. Her only companions are Osh, the man who rescued her from a washed-up skiff as a baby and raised her, and Miss Maggie, their neighbour across the sandbar. But it is only when a mysterious fire appears across the water that an unspoken question of her own history forms in Crow's heart, and an unstoppable chain of events is triggered. Crow sets out to find her lost identity - and, ultimately, to learn what it means to be a family.

Vivid and heartfelt, Beyond the Bright Sea is a gorgeously crafted, gripping tale of buried treasure and belonging.

Beyond the Bright Sea Reviews

A tense and moving adventure story, this book's real strength is in the characters and the understated but overwhelming love that binds solitary people, no matter what their blood links may be * Daily Mail *
Crow is a thrilling heroine, and Wolk's sense of place recalls Daphne de Maurier * The Times *
Lyrical and heartrending . . . A tear-jerking yet ultimately uplifting tale of establishing one's place in the world and realising that sometimes your family is the one you make, not the one you are born into. A stellar story full of heart, action, and emotion * School Library Journal *
An intriguing tale of an orphan determined to find her roots -- Publishers Weekly
Beautiful -- Kirkus
