By Michael Morpurgo.
The stunning novel set during World War I.
May 1915 - Alfie and his fisherman father find a girl on an uninhabited island in the Scillies - injured, thirsty, lost and with absolutely no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. She can only say one word - Lucy. Where has she come from? Is she a mermaid, the victim of a German U-boat, or even as some islanders suggest - A German spy? Only one thing is for sure, she loves music and moonlight, and it is when she listens to the gramophone that the glimmers of the girl she once was begin to appear.
WWI is raging, suspicion and fear are growing and Alfie and Lucy are every more under threat but as we begin to see the story of Merry, a girl boarding a great ship for a perilous journey across the ocean, another melody enters the great symphony and the music begins to resolve.
