What do you do when the world expects more of you than you feel able to give? Skelly returns in this second volume of the sea glass trilogy -- a story of magic, fate, and hope -- where the strength of one reluctant girl is all that stands between the balance of the worlds and an ancient curse that would destroy them all. This is the story of Cliona, the latest of the 'wind singers', a line of women charged with controlling the violent storms that threaten the island of Glencarragh. Reluctant and resentful of her heritage, when she learns the truth about the piece of sea glass that her Gran has kept for years, Cliona must set aside her doubt and fear to battle a rising storm that threatens everything she holds dear.
Cliona has been collecting sea glass with her Gran since she was five. She grew up believing in the the selkies of Glencarragh and that the glass she collected were wishes thrown into the sea. But then *he* arrives and Cliona discovers the truth about herself - her heritage and the tremendous task that faces her.
Can Cliona and her Gran depend upon their forbidden alliance with an ageless exile to protect the village from the storms that are coming?
The wind lashed the trees into a frenzy, sending their branches flailing. The rain blew in sideways sheets, stabbing like a million cold needles against the bare skin of her arms and face. Her hair had torn free of her scarf and whipped like a live thing around her, blinding her with it’s sodden strands.
“I can’t do it,” she whispered through numb lips. Tears mingled with rain on her face and she shuddered with cold and despair. “I can’t…”
The voice in her head was calm but firm.
“Aye, lass. Ye can. Ye have to.”
The wind shrieked across the cliff edge, Cliona dropped to her knees and dug her fingers into the mossy grass, clinging to the earth as the sea raged against the rocks below.
“Skelly?” she didn’t speak out loud. “Help me…”
“I’m here, lass. I’ll do everything I can for ye, but ye’ve got to let me in.”
The second volume of the series, Tales of Glencarragh and of the Sea Glass Trilogy.
