In 1945, two brothers die in the icy Barents Sea and a book is all that survives of them. More than sixty years later Donny and his mother set out for Suffolk to meet his mysterious great aunt.

There is an accident and Donny is taken into care. But are the officials all that they seem and why won’t they believe Donny’s story? Soon he discovers that his life has been built on a lie. Only the new friendships he makes and an unsuspected talent for sailing help him steer his way through dangers that he cannot under-stand towards a knowledge of his own identity – and the secrets of a salt-stained book.
