Summary
When their parents are killed in a train accident, cousins Meline and Jocelyn, who have little in common, are sent to live with their wealthy, eccentric, and isolated Uncle Marten on his island off the coast of British Columbia, where they are soon joined by other oddly disconnected and troubled people
Summary
After the tragic death of their parents, cousins Jocelyn and Meline are sent to live with their eccentric uncle on a remote island off the coast of BC. Thrown together by fate, the girls find it very difficult to connect with each other, struggling to cope with their own tremendous losses and strange new home. This haunting story is sure to capture teen hearts as it showcases Horvath's quirky sense of humour and keen understanding of the healing process
