Fantastic realism. This is one of those haunting books that will stay with you long after you have finished reading. Don't let the fact that it has been marketed as YA put you off. Essentially based on the legend of the Selkies, this novel is one that begs answers to some of life's deeper questions. What does it mean to truly belong? How do stereotypical roles imprison the human race? What does love mean?

Magical prose and evocative language. A wonderful read.
