Overview


Having lived among fishermen of Ireland and Scotland for hundreds of years in her immortal existence, Sarah, the Queen Sea Maiden of the North Irish Sea, is called upon by Sidhe Lena Gig, the Irish goddess of all things feminine to use her daughter to oversee the immigration of an ancient Irish family as they board an immigrant ship, sometimes referred to in history as coffin ships. At the turn of the eighteenth century England's efforts to oust native Irish farmers from their lands caused Scot-Irish families to flee to the port in Belfast and beg for passage to the American colonies. The repeated potato famines between 1700 and 1720 were all that was needed to bring the English aim to send the stubbornly independent Scot-Irish to America.
