Teachers’ Resources

Sea of Whispers is a seafaring adventure and mystery story with an evocative island setting. It introduces a young woman whose affinity with things that cannot be explained set her apart from her community and encourages readers to explore questions such as:


  • How an isolated community can dwell on its past to a dangerous extent and be influenced by a few powerful individuals.
  • The effects of being cut off from outside influences.
  • How the arrival of an outsider can reveal all the prejudices and weaknesses of a community.
  • How the enduring power of love and the courage to follow one’s instincts can overcome even deeply engrained prejudice.
