The Secret of Haven Point is a magical debut novel celebrating the joy of found families and the importance of inclusion and acceptance.

When Alpha was a baby, she washed up by the lighthouse at Haven Point, a remote beach on the North East coast alive with wild magic. Alpha was the first foundling -and now the lighthouse at Haven Point has become a ramshackle home for any disabled child or adult who has ever felt excluded from society. When Alpha spots a strange light up on the headland and realises that her beloved family are in danger of being discovered by Outsiders, it sets in motion a chain of events that will change Haven Point forever.
