Product Details


“When Miss Dillon writes of the sea, one can almost get the tang of salt and hear the waves breaking on a rocky shore.” —The Irish Independent

“A thoroughgoing adventure story with all the details of sailing, place and character brushed in delicately. Plenty of action and a dour sense of humour. Unreservedly recommended.” —The Times (London)

“Beginning quietly with an ordinary market day, the book gathers speed and holds the reader enthralled to its conclusion.” —The Horn Book
“As original and as full of apprehensive suspense as a Graham Greene entertainment for grown-ups.” —The New Statesman

“Simply a good writer….Loving and understanding people, and concerned to tell stories that are as exciting as adventure stories should be but in which the events are tied firmly to human possibility.” —The Times Literary Supplement
