Belfast, 1895. Haunted by her mother s death, Maire McNair is lured
by the selkie myth to the promise of the Alaskan wilds to fulfil
her dream of finding acceptance. Cunning and determination get her
there in the guise of teaching at the Tlingit Indian mission. But
Alaska proves more complex and difficult than she imagined, and the
hope that this new place would transform her is elusive as ever.
The censorious Mrs. Paxson, the wife of the trading post manager,
constantly finds fault with Maire s efforts to instruct the native
children. She has her own plans and Maire is in the way. Will Maire
be able to forge her own way and make a success of her teaching?
And what should she do about the handsome yet moody Lieutenant
Green who is aggressively courting her? Natsilane is the Tlingit
erstwhile mission protege. Troubled and disaffected, he finds
himself battling Maire s naive views and prejudices as he seeks to
regain his own cultural identity by resuming a traditional
lifestyle that draws from the Tlingit myth. But he cannot escape
his past with the mission, nor can he or Maire escape the mutual
attraction they feel. In a world that permits no rule breakers,
will the power of myths trump all?
