‘Liana and the Seventh Spin’ By Roberta Azzopardi

The house that sits by the sea does not age. The villagers fear the dwelling that exists like a fly in an amber stone, but a girl, who dreams of a better life than the only one offered to her in their tiny community, is lured by what it might symbolise. When on her 18th birthday, she finds a strange object while working on the fields, the house calls to her and she, full of hope and dread, answers.

What she discovers in the timeless house by the sea will change the course of her life over and over again.
