When a fisherman falls in love with a Selkie – half woman, half seal – she gives him her sealskin as a sign of her love, and bears him two children, Ffion and Morlo, before returning to her own people. When a stranger comes to the village, telling of a land far away, the children remember their mother’s stories of the cities of gold and pearls beneath the waves….
This lovely, lyrical story of love and freedom was inspired by Welsh myth and a real deserted village in West Wales.
Presented in a beautiful new gift edition, this is a haunting story of love and freedom, for all ages.
Winner of the Tir Na N-og Award.
