Synopsis

Take a trip to the misty island of Merlank in this gothic thriller by Frances Hardinge, a coming-of-age tale, interwoven with stunning illustrations by Emily Gravett. Unexpectedly thrust into the role of the Ferryman, young Milo is tasked with taking the lingering Dead across the dark sea to the Island of the Broken Tower, where they can finally move on. On his first perilious journey, his ghostly passengers include his own father and the teenage daughter of the Lord of Merlank, who is unprepared to give her up and follows in pursuit in a bigger boat, filled with armed men and two dark magicians at his command. Milo must face untold traps, dangers and fears as he carries his ghostly passengers across secret seas... Swarms of sinister moths, strange headless birds and chillingly shrouded figures of death will keep you on the edge of your seat in the heart-warming Island of Whispers, from the author of the Costa Award-winning The Lie Tree, and with atmospheric artwork from the twice-CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal winner.
