Books
The beautifully-told tale of a child's search for meaning through the redemptive power of music. The cod have vanished from Big Running, and now the people are disappearing too. As the fishing industry collapses and residents leave the island in search of work, 10-year-old Finn finds himself living in a ghost town, a place where whole rows of houses stand abandoned. But Finn still has his sister, Cora, with whom he counts the dwindling boats on the coast each night, and Mrs Callaghan, who teaches him the melodies of their native Ireland. That is until his sister disappears, and Finn must find a way of calling home the family and the life he has lost.
