In pursuit of stolen treasure in 1865 Ireland, thirteen-year-old Ailish winds up trapped on the Great Eastern as it sails! The largest ship ever built, the Great Eastern's mission is to lay the fi rst undersea telegraph cable across the Atlantic Ocean. On the journey, Ailish gets help from a young boy, Davy, who seems to live belowdecks. She makes friends with an Irish sailor and tries to track down the hiding place of her father's treasure. The crew must battle the seas and the mishaps of their cable-laying mission, some of which would appear to be sabotage. Through many adventures, Davy is her constant companion. But why won't he ever come topside? Can Ailish use her wits, her determination and her friendships to survive the trip, let alone save the day

Review:

"Ailish's character is well-developed...Details of the cable-laying effort provide a believable backdrop to [her] adventure."-- (03/01/2011)

"There is plenty of action and intrigue to keep readers involved and wanting to find out 'who done it.'...Recommended for school and public libraries."-- (04/01/2011)

"An engaging and fast-paced book that provides enough adventure and suspense to keep readers wanting to read on...Highly Recommended.-- (06/24/2011)

"Action-packed adventure filled with historical events that read as great fiction. Ailish is a remarkable girl and a well developed character who uses her wits to gain back her father's treasure and revenge the thief who stole it...Mystery, suspense, and a satifactory ending make this novel a page-turner and a fine introduction to this historical voyage. Recommended first purchase."-- (07/29/2011)

"Part mystery, part ghost story, part adventure, Ghost Messages is a fast-paced and compelling drama...Young readers will identify with Ailish's bravery and also her fears. Though she is from a different time and place, her experiences are relatable and highly readable."-- (08/25/2011)
