Dreamwater by Patricia Goodwin

What if the truth is more dangerous than the dream?

When Ned Low dreamed of going to sea, he couldn't have imagined what horrors awaited him. When his mother, Rosie Low, visited the old seer, Ed Dimond, she never dreamed she would be arrested for witchcraft. Dreamwater, the sequel to When Two Women Die, is the terrifying journey of 11-year-old pirate Ned Low in 1692, as he makes his way from the Jamaicas back to Marblehead, each day facing new terrors of his own, to rescue his mother and the girl he loves from the witch hysteria that has gripped his home.
In 1995 Marblehead, Peter Treadwell is trying to come to terms with his young wife's murder, while his daughter sees and speaks to her mother's ghost; his son Pete wants to study ghost hunting, but finds himself caught up in internet dangers; Jo Simmons just wants to enjoy her new business and her new husband, but she is being stalked; Cassandra is working very hard to understand reality as well as she understands her psychic visions.
Full of beauty and violence, magic and the paranormal, Dreamwater is a thrilling tale of Marblehead characters, past and modern, trying to achieve their dreams against the often horrifying adversities of real life.
