I would be honest with you, I choose this book to see the quality of craftsmanship from my fellow country woman, and I am astounded, the quality of her writing is great and the intrigue in the story is just right. When I started reading I didn’t expect to be enthralled but I’m glad to say I am, the storyline is excellent, the house on the hill above the sea really hit home, I can actually see it vividly in my head.

This is like a children's horror but with fun and lovable characters, Corinne had it hard but she is a tough and brave little cookie, after being ostracized by the villagers who seems to blame her for the evil Severine and now it’s has started all over with children going missing, yet she still sets out to help. Imagine volunteering to speak to a sea witch, the most evil and probably the strongest Mama D’Leau, how brave is that and to think the adults were afraid. Corinne is a star in my book, this preview I read has intrigue seeping through the creases, it leaves me wondering what happened next, I like this book great stuff.
