Readers who love seafaring adventures like Avi s The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle or the American Girl books will love Barbara Mariconda s The Emerald Shore. This book is the marvelous conclusion to the Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons trilogy, a series that Newbery Award winning author Katherine Applegate calls a grand and adventurous tale.
Lucy is trapped between two powerful magics. The glittering magic that s protected her ever since her parents died, and the dark magic of the Simmons family curse. Lucy s fight to survive the curse has led her to sail on an epic journey across the globe. Now finding Mary Maude Lee s stolen pirate treasure on the rocky shores of Ireland is the only way for Lucy to break the curse and protect herself and everyone she loves.
But time is running out. Danger looms closer than ever before, and Lucy will need courage stronger than magic to save herself from the fate that awaits her."
