The Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons is a fantasy adventure novel for tweens, set at the turn of the century, about a girl who discovers her house is magical soon after her parents are killed. 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 caused her parents to drown-an evil that's doomed her ancestors to die at sea. Lucy's fight to survive the curse has led her to sail on an epic journey across the globe-to Australia in search of her last remaining relative-and now to the rocky shores of Ireland. Lucy and her ragtag crew of friends know this is the 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 time is running out. Danger looms closer than ever before and Lucy will need courage stronger than magic to save herself from the fate that awaits her. The Emerald Shore is Barbara Mariconda's marvelous conclusion to the Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons series.
