A short story about a mysterious man that arrives in a small 19th century Orkney Island fishing village. He has the air of an aristocrat, the clothes of a beggar and a leather pouch filled with the biggest pearls anyone has ever seen.
The women can't take their lustful eyes off him, the men are jealous but he has only one woman and one purpose on his mind.
