Beatrice Beecham’s Fearsome Feast
By Dave Jeffery
Twelve-year-old Beatrice Beecham loves cookery. While her friends are blinded by bling and boys Beatrice scans her ever increasing volumes of Belchette’s Encyclopaedia Gastronomica for a recipe to challenge her awesome culinary talents. But Beatrice’s world is about to change. Fate will steer her family to the remote coastal town of Dorsal Finn. Yet like the ocean that washes into the bay, darkness lurks beneath the surface of this sleepy town. It is a place of secrets. Secrets that some want found, but most prefer to keep hidden. When Aunt Maud gives her an old cook book as a welcome gift Beatrice finds something surprising within its pages: a cry of help from the past. And a terrible portent for the present.
