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 .
Presented in a beautiful, new, gift edition, this is a haunting story of love and freedom, for all ages.
