The Somerset Tsunami
Mr B's review
It’s 1616 and Barrow Hall has a new member of staff, hired to teach young Master Spicer how to grow up into a man with a capital M – only this new teacher is a girl in disguise. Fortune Sharpe shrugs off gender stereotypes in her new position, but with the master of this house growing ever more paranoid of witchcraft and the nearby sea threatening to engulf the entire household, she’s got her work cut out, in this page-turner of a historical novel.
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 Berrow Hall’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.
