Sometimes it’s what’s on the outside that matters.

Burned by a painful divorce, Garland Durrell is thankful to escape to a small village on Cape Cod to lick her wounds and sew the quilts that are her passion. But battered by storms and haunted by inexplicable deaths, Mattaquason is not the haven she thought it would be… especially when she’s the only one willing to help a man and small boy washed up on the beach, both badly wounded and with no memory of how they got there.

Alasdair cannot admit that he does remember. He and his son Conn are the last of a ruling family of selkies, locked in a struggle with an ancient evil that has all but destroyed his people and now threatens the human world. Only powerful magic can stop it, a magic the generous, blue-eyed human who saved him doesn’t know she possesses but which thrums in every thread she stitches.

But as the attraction between Garland and Alasdair grows, so does the danger. Only Garland and her quilts, made with a power she barely believes is real, can save them all…and give them the chance to find out whether a selkie and a human can, for once, live happily after.

Originally published 2016
