About the book
Isabella 


, and Mary can't ignore her feelings towards another man onboard. Through him, she has a taste of the kind of love she might have known, and even begins to think that escape is possible.


is a richly realised story of adventure about a strong young woman determined to survive her fate by a wonderful storyteller.


 'A warm, humane and finely written debut'
So much fascinating detail that the reader's attention never wanders for a moment.'
McKenzie's book grows impressively and movingly into its author's distinct vision'
Unusual, fluently written... [an] unshowy absorbing read' 
Praise for The Chapel at the Edge of the World:

'If you only read one book this summer, though, make it The Chapel at the Edge of The World, the debut novel by Kirsten McKenzie
A fine debut inspired by a wartime act of optimism . . . I can't imagine a finer tribute than this lovely book

Praise for The Chapel at the Edge of the World:

'If you only read one book this summer, though, make it The Chapel at the Edge of The World, the debut novel by Kirsten McKenzie
A rollicking ride on the high seas
What McKenzie excels at is using period detail in the right way: just enough to give a feeling of authenticity but never so much that the history outweighs the story. McKenzie has a natural, fluid writing style
A potent and sophisticated tale of hardship and betrayal
Delightful . . . the two stories are brought together with marvellous skill
