Lucy Marsh’s books are aimed at older children and young adults, but Sisters Of The Lost Marsh will also delight grown-ups looking for something with a historical, mystical air. The story follows six motherless sisters who live on a farm on the edge of the Lost Marsh, a place steeped in mystery, superstitions and folklore. Their father is obsessed with one such superstition – The Curse of the Six Daughters – and it is his belief in this curse that leads to the disappearance of eldest daughter Grace after a mysterious Full Moon Fayre. The storytelling is spellbinding and atmospheric, so much so that you feel like you are there. Not only is the writing beautiful, but the book is a work of art in itself with some gorgeous illustrations.
