|This was a beautiful read. The writing was so beautiful and entrancing. I find this hard to believe it’s a debut novel. I was recommended this book and was glad it was so.
It’s based on Scottish folk lore, On the tales of the Selkies, seals who change to human form when they set foot on land.
Donald when out checking his crab traps is a witness to this miracle, and takes the fateful decision to hide the sealskin of one Selkie so she is marooned; in human form to the land.
This was a read that combines folk traditions and all the mundane tasks of everyday living; earning a living, raising children etc.
I would recommend this read as a alternative to anyone who is maybe jaded with their current genre.
A 5 star read for me.
