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
