But Rosa's background was one of mystery. Her mother, before she drowned in the dyke near their home, had always promised that one day Rosa's father would return to her - a handsome Spaniard, with jewels and silks in treasure chests, sailing in on a ship with golden sails. Mr Drew knew the secret of Rosa's past - and so did the two mysterious Irishmen who came back to the island after many years and who threatened everything which Rosa held most dear.

Really enjoyed this story, read so well. You really get the sense of the place. If you look on the map, Sunk Island is there, just above Grimsby on the other side of the river Humber. I lived in Grimsby for a while and I've visited Hull. So it's lovely to hear a beautiful story about the place from years ago.

What a wonderful story- I really enjoyed listening to it and Anne Dover is a marvellous narrator. It was so easy to imagine the farm, land and the river area and the different characters- those who were good and kind and those those who were unkind and dreadful.Val Wood you write such interesting stories and so I am now going to look for my next book to listen too!!
