    I loved ita beautiful story of love in the Scottish island of Hebrides From the back cover A powerful story of love and redemptione lilt of the pipes, the call of the Fair Folk, the silkies lament, and the wash of the waves fill this tender, nostalgic novel If your heart is in the Hebrides, if you loved Roan Inish, if you believe in love beyond death, this book is for you.
