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 say only 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. World War I is raging, suspicion and fear are growing, and Alfie and Lucy are ever 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...

This turned out to be one of my favourite books! I unintentionally learned some history through the reading of this fictional story, which I will actually remember. If I had read a history book or article, I wouldn't remember. But intertwining it with an interesting well-written tale brought history to life for me.

An amazing story that goes so deep into the plot you feel like you're there. By far my favorite book in the universe. A must read.

This latest from Michael Mopurgo of War Horse fame is another delight.He paints a vivid picture of the times a hundred years ago during WWI in the isolated village environment of the Scilly Isles where the sea is paramount.I'm sure it is based on a true story. My granddaughter should enjoy it very much and I'm waiting for her comments.
