A fantastic, atmospheric story of a young girl who must run for her life because she has brought bad luck to her village—for fans of YA adventure-fantasy

Peat is on the run—forced to flee her life when she's blamed for bringing bad luck to her village. She heads for the endless marshes, where she's caught by an old healer-woman who makes Peat her apprentice and teaches her the skill of storytelling. But a story can be a dangerous thing. It can take you out of one world and leave you stranded in another—and Peat finds herself trapped in an eerie place beyond the Silver River where time stands still. Her only friends are a 900-year-old boy and his ghost hound, plus a small and slippery sleek—a cunning creature that might sink his teeth into your leg one minute, and save your life the next.

Julie Hunt is the author of Ghost Hunter, On the Run, Previous Little, and several other children's books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Song for a Scarlet Runner Captivating adventure story, with well paced action that does not resort to stanard themes of violence and deminic influence. I will be going back for more books by Julie Hunt.
