The Charter


The legend of the Royal Charter is almost as famous as the story of the dead girl who wanders the cliffs at Point Lynas - a victim of the 1859 shipwreck.


After more that a decade away, Sarah Morton must return to her childhood home in Anglesey to bury her father. It's her chance to say goodbye, and good riddance, to her past.


Yet her father leaves her a legacy. A letter. And a safe full of documents about the ancient shipwreck.


The Royal Charter had been carrying gold. Huge amounts of it. And her father's death suddenly looks like murder.


Determined to discover the truth, Sarah is dragged into a dangerous journey, discovering she and the girl on the cliffs have more in common than she could ever believe.


Set along the dramatic and dangerous Anglesey coastline, The Charter is a story of greed and forgiveness - when the treasures of the past evoke the crimes of today.




The Charter is the first, but not the last, of Gillian's novels to be based around the dramatic Anglesey coastline.
