THIEF ISLAND by Elizabeth Coataworth

Email this review


This is a first rate story, with a ghost, mystery element, plus good atmospheric background -- and a perfectly sound explanation. A tale of how a little family -- the father a fisherman, and two children, make a new home and a new career on a lonely island (off the Coast of Maine), and of how a thirteen day storm brings the solution of their problems. This story of the Littles is a good story telling, suspense well-sustained, characters convincing. I liked it.
