From the publisher

A spooky gothic adventure, perfect for fans of Frances Hardinge and for curling up with on a rainy night … 

‘It’s exciting and original, warm and funny and gothic’ KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE

Autumn Albert can see the dead – much to her annoyance. But when her dad dies in mysterious circumstances, he’s the one ghost who doesn’t appear.

A curious instruction in his will sends Autumn to Imber, the storm-soaked island of his childhood: a place marked by tight-lipped locals, strange stacks of witchstones – and even fewer ghosts.

Soon Autumn is ensnared in a dark and twisty mystery, which must be unravelled before the sea rises up and history is doomed to repeat itself …
