Another winner in the enjoyable 14th Century Shapeshifter Sagas. A beautiful story full of charm that took hold of my imagination straight away. The magnetism in each of these stories seem to have me transfixed when I read them, they seem so real. Each are absolutely stand alone reads so there is nothing to be missed just reading one, although I think you will want to read them all, I am totally loving all of them and can't wait for the next one already!
Kristie is widowed and living with her brother, Domnall, and his pregnant wife, Jean on their farm. There is extreme worry for Domnall and his friend who are late returning from a fishing trip, along with the enormous backlog of work that has yet to be done on the farm. Kristie, on searching for her brother, ends up finding an unclothed injured man on the shores, an outsider, who doesn't seem to know who or where he is. They take him in to aide his recovery and he soon starts to help them out on the farm while Domnall is still missing. He starts to make a close connection with Kristie and a friendship with loveable young Jock, who lives with his aunt and uncle in the farm next door.
Jock's father died in battle, he believes his mom to be living in the ocean as a 'selkie', a grey seal who looks for love as a human form but the call of the ocean is always so strong it wins out. Obviously everyone thinks this is one of the youngsters well thought out stories but there could be so much more truth in this than everyone believes.
Who is this outsider and what has happened to Domnall and his friend? Is there a connection or just pure coincidence?
Another fascinating tale to escape into from this author, it pulled me in and towards the end had my heart fluttering wondering what would happen. I really enjoy the flow of the authors writing which just enhances the story. Outsider left me feeling happy and lucky to have been able to read it. Next please!!
