Hope doesn’t only want to listen to her father’s stories about his voyages at sea, she wants to be part of those stories. And so, unbeknownst to her parents, she stows away on her father's 19th-century merchant vessel. But look... The wind has picked up and the sky is darkening. Could there be such a thing as an adventure that is too exciting?
Join high-spirited Hope on a trip of a lifetime in this exquisitely illustrated picture book that also captures the love between a father and child. Hope is thrilled when her father quickly forgives her, and starts teaching her his seafaring tricks... and even when disaster strikes, a caring community helps the sailors home, and the wrecked ship has one more gift to give. This gorgeous story is a tale of adventure and family that will leave kids wishing they could sail their own open wave.
"Father introduces the child to many seafaring chores (and allows a cozy cabin berth). In one spread, he holds a sextant up to the night sky and shows Hope how to navigate: 'Papa has shown me that even the smallest twinkle of light can guide us'.... Miyares (Night Walk to the Sea) delivers an adventure with all the excitement an old-fashioned sea voyage can extend." — Publishers Weekly
