Author Helen Hollick’s new novel, Ripples in the Sand, has been released for Kindle and will be available in paperback worldwide on 21 December 2012.
Approaching England’s North Devon Coast Captain Jesamiah Acorne is worried. A Royal Navy frigate is trailing in his wake and Sea Witch has a hidden cache of brandy and indigo aboard. His instinct is to hoist full sail and flee, but he cannot attract attention, for his wife, Tiola, is ill and getting worse. She says the sea is affecting her, but Jesamiah has never seen seasickness like this before – is it something worse; something to do with her being a white witch perhaps?
Like an approaching storm, his worries get deeper, darker and more sinister.
