The legend of the selkie is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. Add this haunting myth to the dark past of the story's protagonist and you've got yourself a book you can't put down. The cast is strong and defined, allowing you to get a feel for the characters almost immediately, plus there's one hell of a prologue that sets the scene
Moss is an exceptional writer and she demonstrates this with a silky smooth plotline that flows effortlessly from page to page - additionally, her descriptive prose will leave you hankering for a taste of Irish scenery. Although fresh and gripping, it's an easy read that's just perfect for a relaxing weekend/evening, and the touching romantic element is an added bonus to this otherwise powerful book.
