Description - Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan

WINNER: CBCA Book of the Year, Older Readers, 2013

A HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL NOVEL FROM THE WINNER OF FOUR WORLD FANTASY AWARDS.

'Why would I? People are uneasy enough with me - if I start bringing up sea-wives, they'll take against me good and proper.'

'It could be secret.'

'Could it?'

On remote Rollrock Island, the sea-witch Misskaella discovers she can draw a girl from the heart of a seal. So, for a price, any man might buy himself a bride; an irresistibly enchanting sea- wife. But what cost will be borne by the people of Rollrock - the men, the women, the children - once Misskaella sets her heart on doing such a thing?

Margo Lanagan weaves an extraordinary tale of desire and revenge, of loyalty, heartache and human weakness, and of the unforeseen consequences of all-consuming love.

'Lanagan is in a class of her own.' The Weekend Australian
