Daughter of the Sea by Berlie Doherty
Book DescriptionThe only life Gioga has ever known is that of a fisherman's daughter on remote Hamna Voe. But as a baby she was a gift of the sea to childless Munroe and Jannet, and now the Lord of the Oceans wants her back. Torn between her love for her adopted parents and her strange attraction to the seal people, which will she choose - the sea or the land? From the traditional folk-tale of the selkie, award-winning author Berlie Doherty has created her own lyrical and timeless story of a young girl's search for her true identity.
