We are very proud to announce that Our Castle by the Sea by Lucy Strange is the FIRST EVER Independent Booksellers' Children's Book of the Month! 

Exciting, moving and unforgettable, Lucy's second novel follows her acclaimed debut The Secret of Nightingale Wood. A standalone wartime adventure, Our Castle by the Sea is the story of twelve-year-old Pet, who lives with her family in a clifftop lighthouse. When her half-German mother is accused of being a spy, Pet is determined to clear her name - and unmask the saboteur in their midst ...

England is at war. Growing up in a lighthouse, Pet’s world has been one of storms, secret tunnels and stories about sea monsters. But now the clifftops are a terrifying battleground, and her family is torn apart. This is the story of a girl who is small, afraid and unnoticed. A girl who freezes with fear at the enemy planes ripping through the skies overhead. A girl who is somehow destined to become part of the strange, ancient legend of the Daughters of Stone ...
