Diver's Daughter - A Tudor Story explores the life of a young East African girl, Eve, living with her mother in the Southwark slums of Elizabethan London. When they hear from a Mary Rose survivor, George Symon, that one of the African free-divers who was sent to salvage its treasures is alive and well and living in Southampton, mother and daughter agree to try and find him and attempt to dive the wreck of another shop, rumoured to be rich with treasures. But will the pair survive when George arrives to claim his ‘share'? Will Eve overcome her fear of the water to help rescue her mother?
In this thrilling adventure based on real events, Patrice Lawrence shows us a fascinating and rarely seen world that is sure to hook young readers.
