I have read every thing Clare Austin has published and will automatically read anything she publishes in the future.
Muireann O'Malley knows that a planned industrial fisheries project will devastate the coastal area around her home, killing off many birds and seals. Muireann's mother is a Conneely, and old legends hold that the Conneelys' ancestral kin were selkies. Meanwhile in Boston,Tynan Sloane (from Ireland) is planning to buy a bar with the proceeds from the sale of property in West Clare, Ireland, left to him by a deceased relative, Albert O'Malley. Albert had told Muireann that the key to saving the place was buried there.
And so, in lovely bursts of descriptive, melodic prose, Austin deposits Tynan back in Ireland where he encounters his old sweetheart, Muireann, who is unaware of the purpose of his visit. She soon learns that he is the unknown someone with a claim on the place, and that he wants to sell to the fisheries consortium. At this juncture, readers must prepare for total immersion into the complex mysteries of contemporary western Ireland - a region where the ancient world is merely steps away.
