About this ebook

On the first morning of quilt artist Garland Durrell’s new life on Cape Cod after a painful divorce, she finds a man and a small boy washed up on the beach, both badly wounded. Since the town’s 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 are the last of the Cape’s ruling family of selkies, locked in a struggle with an ancient evil that threatens all, selkie and human. He’s not sure if he can trust Garland until he touches one of her quilts and feels the magic she’s sewn into it...and the kindling of a love he never thought he’d feel again.

But the evil entity that left Alasdair 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 graduated from Bryn Mawr College and went on to graduate school intending to be an archaeologist, but somehow got distracted.  Eventually she figured out what she was really supposed to be doing and started writing.  She’s channeled her inner history geekiness into a successful young adult historical fantasy series (the Leland Sisters), and is now also happily writing fantasy of various types for teens and adults.  She lives in her native Massachusetts with her family, including a bossy but adorable pet rabbit, and loves quilting, gardening, and collecting antiques. Oh, and coffee. Please visit her at her website, www.marissadoyle.com, and at her history blog, NineteenTeen  http://nineteenteen.com.
