Mary shares a cottage with her fisherman father and little brother Barney on a small island just off the edge of the map after the death of her mother. Traders from the mainland visit the island regularly in their fishing boats to trade goods with the inhabitants, but then boys go missing, one of them Barney. Morgan was born on the mainland but now lives on the island with her parents and twin sisters, imprisoned in her own house with a storey-high fence. Alternating between the two voices, this book tells of the events that lead to those separate narratives becoming a joint one.

I found this book in the staff picks of the main library. It is definitely intriguing and keeps you wanting to know more... Certainly unique and worth reading.

I know from all the storybooks that wicked stepmothers are to be avoided if you wish to remain good or pure or ignorant. I really want one.

The tall men in boats are coming. I see them through the window, close to the beach. My little brother is sat on my lap. Him puts hims hands on the table, leans round and looks up at me. Hims brown eyes have my reflection inside.
I smile at him, stroke the curls on the back of hims head where them need a wash. I say, 'Sorry Barney. I've got to get you hid, them're coming.
