AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Charlotte sucked in a deep breath and closed her eyes. Out on the water, well away from the smelter's giant chimneystacks that billowed smoke day and night, the air was fresh and salty...

'Charlotte Martin loves the sea. As the daughter of the harbourmaster she knows every ship that comes and goes from the port of Wallaroo. Bored with her lessons at school, Charlotte instead yearns to join her brothers' rowing team. They allow her to secretly practise with them, but this was the 1880s, a time when girls were not allowed to row.

'To add to her worries, the sinister Edgar Cudlip soon discovers their secret, and Charlotte and her friend Megan become entangled in a series of events that finds them both in trouble - up to their necks!'
