Today Books+ brings you a whole series of books about the sea and ships. Favel Parrett’s new novel When the Night Comes is set in Hobart in the 1980s. But just off shore there’s a red ship that captures the city’s imagination, and brings warmth to a small isolated family. Also, the ghost of the Mary Celeste in two different books – Yrsa Sigurdardottir's The Silence of the Sea and Valerie Martin's Ghost of the Mary Celeste.
