Sisters of the Lost Marsh by Lucy Strange


Lucy Strange’s books are aimed at older children and young adults, but this will also delight grown-ups looking for something with a historical, mystical air. The story follows six motherless sisters who live on a farm on the edge of the Lost Marsh, a place steeped in mystery, superstiti­ons and folklore. Their father is obsessed with the Curse of the Six Daughters – and it is his belief in this curse that leads to the disappeara­nce of eldest daughter Grace after a Full Moon Fayre. The storytelli­ng is spellbindi­ng and atmospheri­c, so much so that you feel like you are there. Not only is the writing beautiful, but the book is a work of art in itself with some gorgeous illustrati­ons.
