Interest Age Teen, Reading Age 8+. A strong and dramatic story which tells how a young girl is kept living on an island and completely removed from the world by her father until her eyes are opened by the arrival of a strange young man. Anna has always though that Max, her father’s assistant, had her best interests at heart. He seems more fun that the other servants in the house. In fact, she’s beginning to think about him romantically…But then a young man is mysteriously washed ashore. Who is he? And how will he change Anna’s life.

An atmospheric historical romance for teens, from a gifted and acclaimed author. Beautifully packaged with a foiled jacket. Particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic teens.

Synopsis

Wild Song by Jane Eagland

Anna is living a lonely life on a small island with only her ageing mathematician father and his helper Max as company. When Rob washes ashore after an accident, Anna's world is turned upside-down. Is Max really devoted to her father? Is Rob the love she's been waiting for? Could she really leave the island? Drawing inspiration from The Tempest, Jane Eagland has woven a rich and moving story of mystery, love and deception.Particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic teens.

About the Author

Jane Eagland

Born firmly in the last century, too late to make the most of the swinging sixties, I was an 'Essex girl.' But I have lived in the north for so many years now, my loyalties and ties are here.

I have come late to taking my writing seriously. After teaching English in secondary schools for long enough, I decided something had to be done while there was still time. In my work, I'm a Jekyll and Hyde, veering between the lightness of stories for children, which I enjoy hugely, (my inner child is about four, I reckon) and fiction for adults, in which I seem to produce atmospheres of menace and unease.
