This final book in The Children of Crow Cove series has Doup as the main character. Doup came to Crow Cove as a child with the Crow-Girl. He has lived there all of his life but misses his older brother Ravnar who has moved away. Doup reclaims his birthname of Alek and heads off with his father to town to find Ravnar. They discover his empty home that is dirty and dank. Ravnar only appears when his boat is in harbor, otherwise he is out fishing for a living. Alek’s father leaves him with Ravnar and returns to Crow Cove. But one night, Alek witnesses a shipwreck on the beach where the sailors were tricked into beaching the boat. He then sees a man murdered and discovers a young girl hiding away from the beach. Alek takes the girl home with him, though she doesn’t speak his language. Young Alek has to figure out what happened and then what to do about it.
