Summary

A fight for survival against torrential flooding and local superstition from the Queen of Historical Fiction.  

'My name is Fortune and I am on trial for my life. They say I did magic that made the sea disappear, then come back again so monstrous and so fast no person could out-run the waves. The sea came so far inland, cows climbed trees to escape! But I didn't do magic. All I did was save a drowning boy: I pray he'll now speak the truth and save me....'  

The year is 1607. When a catastrophic flood hits the Somerset coast, young sailor-in-disguise Fortune gets the blame. Locals are convinced witchcraft is at work. And Fortune - who is secretive, suspiciously good at swimming and, to everyone's surprise, a girl - is an obvious scapegoat. Even saving the life of her rival's only son doesn't clear her name. If anything, it makes matters worse....

Another wonderful story

Emma Carroll brings to life and event unthinkable in Somerset... but it’s the truth. The full impact of that historic tsunami told through the eyes of Fortune, as she makes her way in the world and finds herself the target of a witch hunt. It’s a wonderful tale beautifully narrated by Katherine Press.
