Taya is a bardess who lives beside the sea, singing to the lonely sailors and townspeople of the seaside village she calls home. Into her life comes a strange and beautiful man, a handsome, wonderful individual who is also one of the sea people - the Selkies - shapeshifters of legend.
When the Selkies transform from their seal form to human form, they remove and store a beautiful pelt.
