Publisher's Synopsis

Set in a Tyneside fishing village, Herring Girl moves effortlessly between 1898 and 2007 as twelve-year-old Ben finds himself the unlikely conduit for Annie, a herring girl who lived - and died - a century earlier. As Ben tries to unravel the puzzle of Annie's death, he is drawn irresistibly into her long-vanished world.

Bringing the startling story of Annie's life and curious death vividly to life, this brilliantly realised historical mystery introduces a cast of unforgettable characters, and reveals how the secrets of our past are never too far away.
