From the Inside Flap:
A classic children?s book for every Canadian family to treasure for all time ? a story of mystery and young love in a richly detailed Canadian historical setting.

From the winner of the Governor General?s Award for Children?s Literature comes one of Canada?s best-loved, bestselling books for young readers.

In the award-winning follow-up to the beloved children?s classic, The Root Cellar, Janet Lunn brings us an enthralling historical tale of Celtic magic, kindred spirits and the struggles of pioneer life in Upper Canada.

Shadow in Hawthorn Bay introduces fifteen-year-old Mary Urquhart, a Scottish girl with a special gift ? the gift of ?second sight?. One morning, in the spring of 1815, Mary hears her beloved cousin Duncan calling desperately for her help. But Duncan is 3,000 miles away in Upper Canada, and to journey to him means leaving the safety and comfort of home for an unknown wilderness.

Answering the call, Mary finds herself battling dark forces in a foreign land. But as she struggles for her survival and independence, she unexpectedly finds friendship ? with cheerful Yankee Patty, with Owena, the quiet Indian who recognizes the healing powers in her, and with Luke ? so different from ?Duncan the black.?

Praise for Shadow in Hawthorn Bay:
“Finely crafted… enthralling and mysterious historical fiction.” – The Globe and Mail

“A story about the mystery and tremendous strength and determination of the human spirit… Lunn’s mature writing allows her readers to feel every detail of her narrative: the harsh beauty of the Highlands, the misery of the ocean crossing, the suffocating loneliness of the forest and the warmth of friendships forged in the common struggle for survival.” – Books in Canada

“A fine, sensitive story [with] an engaging heroine… and pioneer families. Lunn has woven a rich, engrossing story of growth and self discovery…. Fine, evocative writing.” – London Free Press

Book Description Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 216 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). "One spring morning in 1815, in the highlands of Scotland where spirits and witches are a fact of life and the ancient feast of Beltane is still celebrated, fifteen-year-old Mary Urquhart hears her beloved cousin Duncan calling her to join him - from three thousand miles away in Upper Canada. Yet his call is so urgent that Mary sets off alone across the ocean to find him, braving the sea-voyage to Quebec, and making her way up the St. Lawrence until she finally comes to Hawthorn Bay on Lake Ontario - only to discover that Duncan is dead, and that her aunt and uncle have moved on. Mary is not just alone in this frightening land of primeval forests - she is also misunderstood by the practical Yankees who have settled in the district, and who distrust her powers of 'second sight' and her Gaelic belief in ghosts and witches. For despite Duncan's death, Mary still hears his voice calling her to join him. But as she battles threatening dark forces and fights for her survival, Mary unexpectedly finds friendship - with cheerful Patty and little Henry, with Owena, the quiet Indian who recognizes the healing powers in her, and with Luke - so very different from 'Duncan the black'. (A)n enthralling historical tale of mystery and love." By the author of 'The Root Cellar'. Very light browning to edges of textblock, minor edgewear to boards, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor edgewear, light edge wrinkling - mainly at top of spine and flap-folds. Seller Inventory # 17201
