‘A complex and well-written tale of friendship and sailing, with a big nod to the tales of Arthur Ransome. This modern-day adventure is as thrilling as those books of older times. A clever and rewarding read.’ ~ Elizabeth Jolley (Editor, North Pole News – Oregon, USA)
‘A highly enjoyable read which packs an emotional punch too. The wonderful relationships that develop between the children and the characters who start out as strangers reminds us of how much of what used to be normal we have lost.’ ~ David Cooper, Scotland
