The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: Book V: The Unmapped Sea

The Unmapped Sea

Incorrigible Children of Ashto

"A baby—blast!" Lord Fredrick Ashton may not feel ready to be a father, but with a little Ashton on the way, he´s sure about one thing: The wolfish curse on his family must end soon, before the child is born. Otherwise, he warns Miss Penelope Lumley, "a barking baby Ashton is just what we shall have."

Penelope takes on the challenge, for she knows that the fate of her own pupils is strangely bound to the fate of the moon-cursed Ashtons. The missing puzzle piece lies within the fading memory of an ancient mariner named Pudge, a resident of the old sailors´ home in Brighton. When Lady Constance´s doctor prescribes a seaside holiday, Penelope jumps at the chance to take the three Incorrigible children to Brighton. There, with the help of her friend Simon, she hopes to find out what Pudge knows.

The Ashtons are not the only ones at the beach in January, however. The temperamental Babushkinov family is also taking the winter waters. The Incorrigibles may have been raised by wolves, but the Babushkawoos (as the children call them) are the wildest creatures they´ve ever seen. Is it more than mere coincidence that these untamed children have turned up in Brighton just as Penelope and the Incorrigibles arrive?

Portrait
Maryrose Wood is the author of The Mysterious Howling, The Hidden Gallery, and The Unseen Guest-the first three books in this continuing series about the Incorrigible children and their governess. These books may be considered works of fiction, which is to say, the true bits and the untrue bits are so thoroughly mixed together that no one should be able to tell the difference. This process of fabrication is fully permitted under the terms of the author's Poetic License, which is one of her most prized possessions. Maryrose's other qualifications for writing these tales include a scandalous stint as a professional thespian, many years as a private governess to two curious and occasionally rambunctious pupils, and whatever literary insights she may have gleaned from living in close proximity to a clever but disobedient dog.
