The epic conclusion to Barbara Mariconda’s Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons series, which Newbery Award–winning author Katherine Applegate calls “a grand and adventurous tale, as magical and mysterious as the sea itself.”
Lucy is trapped between two powerful magics...
The glittering magic that’s protected her ever since her parents died: ornate talking cards, a singing flute, and an enchanted ship that guide her toward her destiny.
And the dark magic of the Simmons family curse: the curse that’s doomed all her ancestors, including her parents, to die at sea.
Lucy’s fight to survive the curse has led her to sail across the globe to the rocky shores of Ireland, the supposed resting place of Mary Maude Lee’s stolen pirate treasure.
Finding it is the only way for Lucy to break the curse and protect herself and everyone she loves. But danger looms closer than ever before and Lucy will need courage stronger than magic to save herself from the fate that awaits her.
Newbery Honor winner Patricia Reilly Giff called The Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons “a thrilling, magical story with a feisty, unforgettable heroine.” Brimming with seafaring adventure and glittering magic and perfect for readers who love Avi and the American Girl doll books, The Emerald Shore is Barbara Mariconda’s magnificent conclusion to the Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons series.
