In this historical mystery for young readers, author Whitney Stewart leads her two young heroes, Anna and Nat, back into the Nantucket of the 1800s. With the aid of a ghostly crow, a time warp and a poignant love story, the children find a pirate treasure—and discover the island’s rich and spooky past in the process.
After Hurricane Katrina, Stewart and her family lived on the Massachusetts island of Nantucket where her son went to school. During their semester away, Stewart researched Nantucket history and ghost legends, and she spent hours looking at old gravestones.
