Beyond the Bright Sea

Image result for beyond the bright seaWhat an amazing journey!  I absolutely fell in love with Crow. She’s just such a plucky, fearless, and independent young creature! The relationsip she has with her father and lady neighbor are reminiscent of another young favorite of mine, Scout Finch. This one will teach us all about the beauty of family, in whatever form that may find you. Loved it!

Twelve-year-old Crow has lived her entire life on a tiny, isolated piece of the starkly beautiful Elizabeth Islands in Massachusetts. Abandoned and set adrift on a small boat when she was just hours old, Crow’s only companions are Osh, the man who rescued and raised her, and Miss Maggie, their fierce and affectionate neighbor across the sandbar.
