It's 1676 and 'spirits' are stalking the kingdom. When eight-year-old Penny is kidnapped outside Whitehall Palace and taken away to the West Indies, how can Susannah and Raphael hope to save her?
Arriving in Jamaica, they reunite with Sam Carter - Penny's natural father - and Noah and Hal Bartholomew. And so, the desperate search to find her begins: a race against time, treachery and powerful enemies.
After many fruitless months sailing the Caribbean, seemingly genuine information about a sugar plantation where Penny might be sends them back to Barbados. But are they already too late?
A riveting historical adventure set in 17th century West Indies, Our Little Life is the second book in Dodie Bishop's 'Silence And Shadows' series.
