AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Annie moves with her family to the seaside town of Tiger Bay, she finds a place full of secrets, mystery and a strange sadness. [...] There are two elderly characters in The Pearl of Tiger Bay. One is Por Por, Jin's ghost-busting grandma and the other is Madame Olenka, a strange old lady who lives in a dilapidated hotel that overlooks the town. The Pearl used to be a world famous hotel in its heyday, but when Madam Olenka lost her little girl thirty years ago, she shut the place down and locked herself inside, refusing to speak to anyone. With the closure of The Pearl, the little town of Tiger Bay seemed to die too.' (Source: Author's website)
