'My name is Fortune and I am on trial for my life. All I did was save a drowning boy: I pray he'll now speak the truth and save me . . And Fortune - who is secretive, suspiciously good at swimming and, to everyone's surprise, a girl - is an obvious scapegoat. If anything, it makes matters worse . .

"Deadly floods and witch-hunting enthrall "

Never mind an involuntary dip in the icy Bristol Channel, to read a new Emma Carroll book is to wallow in a warm bath as she expertly combines a thrilling story with local history and characters to root for.
