The Edinburgh Festival brings together artists from all over the world, and Cowrie is among them, telling stories and giving readings. But even Cowrie can’t anticipate the chemistry that will begin when a group of traditional storytellers sets off to the Orkney Islands with Ellen, to stay at her coastal family cottages. For Ellen turns out to be Morrigan, and Morrigan is a selkie, living in the sea and on land. As an ancient mystery unravels, Cowrie and Sasha must turn detective to discover the truth behind Morrigan and the song of the selkies.

'Read Song of the Selkies as a guide to the Orkneys, a first class mystery story, a post-modern comment on lesbian feminism or just read it for fun. It is a visionary book and Cathie Dunsford is a writer whose visions begin with today.' Carolyn Firth Gammon
'Dunsford’s books are rich in cultural myths, she weaves reality and dreaming into wonderful stories.' Jude Dennis, Lesbiana
'This is a story about stories. … If you love folklore and are interested in the rebuilding of indigenous cultures after colonisation then you will love this book.' Evelyn Hartogh, Queensland Pride
