Bridey Corkill has hated the ocean ever since she watched her granddad drown. When a dead girl rolls in with the tide in the summer of 1913, sixteen-year-old Bridey has a feeling that the girls death and her granddads are connected. Not long after, villagers are vanishing in the night. No one but the island’s witch, and the handsome dark-haired lad Fynn and Bridey suspect the connection. Now, Bridey must work with the Isle’s witch and the boy she isn’t sure she can trust in order to save the entire village from drowning.
