On remote Rollrock Island, the sea-witch Misskaella knows how to draw a girl from the heart of a seal, as a selkie, how to lure the enchanting beauty out of the beast. And, for a price, any man might buy himself a sea-wife. He may have and hold and keep her. But from his first look into those wide, questioning, loving eyes, he will be just as transformed as she. He will be equally ensnared. And the witch will have her true payment. With devastatingly beautiful prose, four-time World Fantasy Award winner Margo Lanagan weaves an extraordinary tale of desire and despair, heartache and human weakness, and the unforeseen consequences of all-consuming love
