A powerful historical story for readers aged 8+

Young readers will be transported by this historical novel about friendship and mental health


We love the coastal setting and the dual timeline of this story, which travels between the present day and 1884. This is a book packed with courage, hope and empathy, not to mention strong STEM themes too.

~Sarah

1884. Emma Linden dreams of following in the footsteps of the famous fossil-hunter, Mary Anning on the Jurassic Coast. But Emma's world begins to spiral when her brother James becomes obsessed with a glassy-eyed tiger at the museum.

More than a hundred years later, her descendant Rosie Linden goes missing, her mind full of prowling tigers. With her new friend Jude, Rosie uncovers family secrets buried like layer upon layer of rock. Together they must sift the past to find the truth and heal the present.

Hannah Foley lives in Devon with her three children. She works as a specialist nurse, as well as an author and illustrator. She won the Kelpies Prize for her first novel in 2018.
