    schema:description ""Virginia Wrathmell has always known she will meet her death on the marsh in reparation for the mistakes of her childhood. On New Year's Eve, at the age of eighty-six, Virginia feels the time has finally come. In 1939, Virginia is ten, an orphan arriving to meet her new adoptive parents, Clem and Lorna Wrathmell, at their mysterious house, Salt Winds. The house sits right on the edge of a vast marsh, a beautiful but dangerous place. It's the start of a new life for Virginia, but she quickly senses that all is not right between Clem and Lorna - in particular, the presence of their wealthy neighbour Max Deering, who takes an unhealthy interest in the family. When a German fighter plane crashes into the marsh, Clem ventures onto the deadly sands to rescue the airman. And that is when things really begin to go wrong."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
