The Way to Sattin Shore

Written by Philippa Pearce

The Way to Sattin Shore Synopsis

Kate never knew her dad, but that doesn't stop her missing him. She often secretly visits the gravestone with his name on it. But when the gravestone disappears Kate has a mystery on her hands. She has to find out what has happened and as she delves deeper into her family's past, she realizes that there are many secrets to uncover and that all the clues point to one place. As Kate races to Sattin Shore her mind is a whirl of emotions: what she finds there will change the shape of her life for ever.

The Good Book Guide Review

The story of Kate, youngest of three children who believes her father to be dead until the disappearance of a tombstone in the churchyard, the arrival of a mysterious letter and a half-heard conversation prompt her to explore past history - painfully - for herself. A brilliantly plotted novel that does for realism in children's fiction what Tom 's Midnight Garden did for fantasy.
