The only life Gioga has ever known is that of a fisherman’s daughter on remote Hamna Voe. But as a baby she was a gift of the sea to childless Munroe and Jannet. Now, the Lord of the Oceans wants her back. Torn between her love for her adopted parents and her strange attraction to the seal people, which will she choose — the sea or the land?

From the traditional folk-tale of the selkie, award-winning author Berlie Doherty has created her own lyrical and timeless story of a young girl’s search for her true identity.

From the Inside Flap:

ift from the sea to the childless Jannet and Munroe--but only a temporary one. The couple treat Gioga as if she were of their own flesh and blood, not understanding that they would need to let her go before long. When it comes time to return their daughter to her rightful home, desperation sets in. No amount of toil and bloodshed, however, will distract Gioga from the longing she feels to return. . . .

From the Back Cover:

"Those captivated by other selkie tales will find a full measure of magic and mystery here."--Kirkus Reviews

"The author's voice is straightforward and gripping; her images are as strong as the stones on which the fishermen hone their knives and as lyrical as the ebb and flow of the tides."--The Horn Book Magazine
