Na de dood van haar grootmoeder gaat Tamsyn naar Londen om bij haar oom Gideon en tante Deborah te gaan wonen. Ze was liever bij haar oom Martin, die scheepsbouwer is, gebleven, maar een man alleen wordt niet geschikt geacht om een meisje op te voeden.
Tamsyn heeft tijd nodig om zich in Londen thuis te voelen, maar haar neef Piers helpt haar.
Piers zou graag naar zee gaan, maar zijn oudere broer is nooit meer thuisgekomen nadat hij naar zee ging, dus Piers moet blijven om zijn vader op te volgen.

Rosemary Sutcliff is één van mijn lievelingsschrijfsters, maar dit boek is wat vlak, het verhaal kabbelt door naar een wat voorspelbaar einde. ( )

Tamsyn Caunter stood on the doorstep of the little grey house and watched the grey sky above the treetops, and shivered in the grey March wind that seemed somehow colder than any wind she had ever known before.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

If only she'd been born a boy, Tamsyn would never have been sent away to Uncle Gideon's - the armourer's - house when her grandmother died. She could have stayed by the wild sea that she loved with her Uncle Martin, the ship merchant. But instead, she is bound for busy, bustling Tudor London, and the armourer's house, far from the coast and far from her beloved ships. Homesick and lonely in the loud family of cousins, it isn't until she meets the strange old Wise Woman that Tamsyn is finally promised her "heart's desire"...
