'She will come for you...'

Lark needs a break. Her mother is ill, her little sister has stopped speaking and she's fallen out with her best friend. When they go on holiday to the Welsh coast for autumn half term the sisters rush off to explore. But this freedom soon gets frightening. Is there a figure in the fog? What happened at the ruined house in the woods? Why does her sister keep drawing a girl in a green dress? As the storms get wilder and events get stranger, Lark must face a long-buried secret to save her family.

A chilling contemporary ghost story from the award-winning author of Gaslight, inspired by and set firmly on the Welsh shoreline.

Praise for Seaglass:

‘This chilling ghost story will have readers gripped from the outset. As well as the spine-tingling supernatural elements, this compelling novel contains beautifully-written descriptions of the Welsh coastline and wildlife, and also explores issues such as racism, friendship, honesty and trust.’ BookTrust

‘a brilliantly atmospheric and shiver-some ghost story which skilfully dovetails past and present whilst capturing all the confusion of being 13.’ Abi Elphinstone

'A fascinating mystery wrapping a sensitive portrayal of adolescence as Lark is tumbled and changed by the storms and calms of growing up like the seaglass of the title.' Celia Rees

'Brilliant. So atmospheric, and chilling, and gripping, but with real warmth at its heart. Loved the heroine; a character of real complexity, and Eloise Williams' writing is as shining and beautiful as the book’s title.' Kiran Milwood-Hargrave

'What a book. Powerful and thought-provoking, with family and friendship at its core and so much to say about the importance of words and compassion. Truly exceptional.' Amy Wilson

‘Much more than a seriously spooky and atmospheric ghost story, Seaglass is also a powerful portrait of a family in crisis, with a completely convincing teen narrator. Fantastic stuff!’ Lucy Strange

'Seaglass is definitely a book to add to your reading list - you won't be disappointed!’ The Book Activist

'I adored her previous novel, Gaslight but I think Lark and Snow might have stolen my heart. 10/10 for Seaglass.' Rhian Ivory
 
'I absolutely adored this book! A proper ghost story, swirling with atmosphere and tension, all tangled in those liminal areas between land and sea, life and death, anger and sorrow and childhood and adult life. A true pleasing terror, and beautifully crafted.' Kenilworth Books

'A deliciously atmospheric ghost story set on the salty windswept Welsh coast.' Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

'wonderfully gripping, it dazzles like sea glass itself. 5 stars.' Scott Evans, The Reader Teacher and #PrimarySchoolBookClub

'This supernatural tale will thrill and intrigue kids until the final haunting and shocking twist is revealed at the end.' Zoe James-Williams, South Wales Evening Post Children’s Book of the Week
 
‘It is a story that is as haunting as the ghosts that inhabit the book. Eerie, enthralling and totally consuming. I was completely captivated the whole way through.’ Fallen Star Stories
