Overview

After a painful divorce, Garland Durrell looks forward to settling into her home on Cape Cod to make the quilts that are her passion. On the first morning of her new life she finds a man and a small boy washed up on the beach, both badly wounded. Since the town chief of police is strangely reluctant to help, Garland takes on the care of the mysterious pair who don't seem to remember what happened to them--and feels her own heart begin to heal.

Alasdair does remember. He and his son Conn are the last of the ruling family of selkies from the waters around the Cape, locked in a decades-long struggle with an evil that threatens all, selkie and human. He's not sure if he can trust the lovely, blue-eyed woman who takes them in until he touches one of her quilts and feels the magic she's sewn into it...and the emotions that he never thought he'd feel again.

But the evil entity that stole Alasdair's sealskin and left him for dead quickly senses both his presence and Garland's magic, and is determined to destroy one and possess the other. Only Garland and her quilts, made with a power she barely believes she has, can save them all from destruction--if she can avoid being destroyed first.

About the Author

Marissa Doyle originally intended to be an archaeologist but somehow got distracted.  But she’s put her passion for history into writing fiction: her award-winning YA books Bewitching Season, Betraying Season, and Courtship and Curses (all from Henry Holt Books for Young Readers/Macmillan) blend history with magic and romance. Her first book for adults, By Jove, is now available from Entangled Publishing. She lives in Massachusetts with her family, multiple boxes of fabric, and a pair of bossy pet rabbits.
