Summary
After the death of her mother, ten-year-old Fiona is sent to live with her grandparents in a small fishing village on the coast of Ireland. There she hears the legend of Selkie, the half-human, half-seal creature that is said to inhabit the nearby island of Roan Inish. As she learns more about her family history, she begins to believe that her brother, who was swept out to sea as a baby, is still alive
