The Widow's Last Secret
Daughter of the Shipwreck
"A soaring, sweeping, satisfying novel"
An utterly gripping and powerful novel about family, secrets, identity, and risking everything to be true to yourself. If you liked The Foundling, The Miniaturist or Amy Snow, you will love Daughter of the Shipwreck.
