Eyes Of The Amaryllis

The Eyes Of The Amaryllis
Natalie Babbitt
***** 5 Star

 When the ship Amaryllis was swallowed in a hurricane, the captain, and all the crew were swallowed, too. For thirty years, the captain's widow, Geneva Reade, has waited, certain that her husband will send her a message from the bottom of the sea. But someone else is waiting, too, and watching her, someone called Steward, the man that made a bargain with the sea to spare his own life.
Into this haunted situation comes Jenny, the widows granddaughter.
The three of them, Geneva, Jenny, and Steward, are drawn into a kind of deadly game with one another and with the sea, a game that only the sea knows how to win.

This book was beautifully written, I couldn't stop turning the pages! This book was a haunting, gripping, and terribly romantic story. These are the kinds of books you don't see very often, (from my perspective).
My favorite character was every character! Each was done wonderfully! So please read this book.
You can buy this book a your local bookstore ~
