KIRKUS REVIEW

Ten-year-old Fiona takes a nostalgic journey back to the islands of Scotland and to the home of her grandparents. Filled with longing for the island life, Fiona happily leaves the smoky city to which in the last four years she has been exiled, believing that the old ways of the islanders are more sound than the hectic enterprises of her parents. And it is here in the Western Isles in a mist of fantasy, lore, and possibility, she reclaims from the sea her lost brother, who as a child became a ward of the seals, totally adapted to the life of the ocean. A poetic story which rests heavily on the folk traditions of the Western Isles and which contains much of that poetry of language and conception native to the traditional Scots.
