Description
In her fourth and final book in the Children of Crow Cove series for readers 8 to 12, following Tink and the Mildred L. Batchelder Honor Books The Crow Girl and Eidi, Bodil Bredsdorff takes us back to the small community by the sea, where a little boy called Doup once came to live. Now that he's old enough to understand how his pet horse could die of old age, he decides he's ready to use his birth name, Alek, and to leave Crow Cove and find his own place in the world. At Last Harbor he finds his older, embittered brother and takes work at an inn. But it is when he rescues a girl named Thala from the ship breakers who have murdered her family that Alek begins to develop a sense of purpose.

"The two brothers and Thala want to find the murderers and bring them to justice. As always in Bredsdorff's books, there is a clear understanding of human nature, ethical dilemmas are unraveled, and the language has a lyrical crispness that makes the reading rewarding. While youngsters would do well to have read the earlier titles, there is still enough adventure and courage in this one to satisfy newcomers. This novel emphasizes that humans' connections to one another make life rewarding by showing that Alek's efforts to do right pay off. An immensely satisfying ending to the series."—School Library Journal
