"A beautiful tapestry of pirate-treasure adventure, suspense, a search for family, and warm family bonds that'll keep the pages turning and the heartstrings tugging." -- Common Sense Media
"A sweeping work self-discovery and love, Beyond the Bright Sea is thought-provoking and pitch-perfect in every way." --The Times Herald "This is the story of a girl trying to discover who she is and who she wants to be, but it is also a fast-paced thriller with kidnapping and buried treasure, a murderous escaped convict, and a shipwreck. Crow, Osh and Miss Maggie are wonderful characters, quirky and lovable and real. The lessons Crow learns about people and herself are profound. The sea crashes, and the smell of salt and fish and ocean spray will make you feel drenched as you read. The writing is fabulous." -- Historical Novel Society

Beyond the Bright Sea was a beautiful little read. The main character, Crow, really captivated me as she journeyed in this novel to find her ‘roots’.
Crow’s relationships with ‘Osh’ and ‘Miss Maggie’ were sweet, innocent and endearing – there was such fierce protectiveness and familial love between these three people that you couldn’t help but be warmed by them.
Wolk’s writing is perfect in its style for this story. It wasn’t over complicated and had a rawness that I liked. It reminded our book club of Scout in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’.
The setting was charming and a character in itself, I felt.
I would encourage anyone to read this one! And if you have any 9+ year olds then give it to them to read, too.
