Summary

‘A sublime eco adventure.’ The Times

From the Costa Award winning author of Voyage of the Sparrowhawk comes an epic adventure with a call to arms: we must fight to save the most treasured things on our planet.

On the top of the hill, overlooking the sea, that’s where you’ll find a magical place . . .

To Bea and Raffy, Ravenwood is home. In its own way, the house rescued them, even if it did have a fallen-down tree taking up most of the kitchen. So the idea that it could be sold. Demolished even. Well, that’s unthinkable. Then again, it’s not like the children get a choice. But the truth is, we can all make our own choices, especially if we care enough . . .

A beautiful, soulful, exciting story about holding onto what’s precious, and guarding the extraordinary nature that surrounds us.

Critic Reviews

Every now and again a children's book comes along that is so delightful and perfectly crafted that the adult reader is transported back to being eight years old, Farrant's Rescue of Ravenwood is one such title.... One of the finest middle-grade novels I have read this year.

The Bookseller

Really, it's another terrific tale of coming-into-power, where the younger generation must defy adults to defend what's important.

The Observer
Critic Reviews

Thought-provoking and hopeful.
