DescriptionA richly imagined fantasy set in Nova Scotia where a young girl--part selkie, part human--must save her family. I am human upon dry land. I swim as selkie on the sea. Brigit knows all the old songs and legends by heart: of Neve, the daughter of the sea god; of the warrior Finn MacCool; and of people who are not quite human. But Brigit knows the truth. It's evident in the webbing between her fingers-webbing that must be cut. She's the daughter of a selkie. A truth she must keep secret from everyone. But someone in her village is killing young seals. Angering the king of the selkie clan, who vows revenge. A curse that will bring storm, sickness, and death. To protect those she loves, Brigit must find a way to Sule Skerrie, the land of selkies, to confront the Great Selkie and protect the young seals from harm. Like sitting by a warm fireplace, The Selkie's Daughter is an imaginative fantasy, steeped in Celtic mythology and rich with detail. Perfect for fans of mermaids and Studio Ghibli-esque stories.
