The Running Tide

Gumnor, the last of a whale-type species, has acted as a foghorn from the harbour for as long as Rarty can remember. When Gumnor disappears, Rarty's family is devastated. They assume she is dead and set out on a long journey to find the truth.

The Running Tide

The Running Tide is a set of three books consisting of The Ship Thief , Compass Murphy and Hunting Gumnor. Each of them is a stand-alone adventure story, and they can be read in any order. You don’t need to know what happens in one book to understand the next one. There are different characters at the centre of each book, but some, who might be children or young adults in one story, return as adults or old people in another. All of the stories feature the sea, whether it is the icy Arctic of the mid 19th century (Compass Murphy) the stormy North Pacific off Gold Rush Alaska (The Ship Thief) or the kinder coast of modern Britain (Hunting Gumnor). And there are boats and animals galore!
