Nerisa is a selkie who had long dreamed of exploring the world beyond her people’s territory and finding her other half, should she exist.
With a leap of faith fueled by wanderlust, she was ready to embrace what the town of Arkan Hallow had to offer. She found an uninhabited shack by the sea, a job as a carer and the beginnings of a new life… and she was enjoying it.
The thief struck when she was at work and stole her pelt. It was more than a piece of clothing or her means to shapeshift; it was a part of her soul and her only way of returning to live among her kind. Without it she couldn’t become a seal again. She couldn’t return to live in her family’s waters and continue the life she’d had before. Without it she felt very much alone.
Desperate, Nerisa searches for help and finds it with Nina, the daughter of a witch and fortune teller. Nina is still recovering from a break-up, and she becomes captivated by the beautiful woman from the sea. She decides she has to help her at any cost.
The closer they get to answers, the more dangerous their quest becomes, and the stakes should they fail. Only by discovering who is behind it all can they get Nerisa’s pelt back and find a happy future together.
Dani lost all her dreams in the divorce three years ago, but she’s finally saved up enough to live her own dream this time. So, she moves to the island with her young daughter, Rose, to open a flower shop, ready for a new start in her life.
Her heart is still tender, but when she catches a glimpse of her daughter’s teacher, things start to change.
Kim is the only one of her siblings who still lives on the island. She loves her job as a primary school teacher but with siblings with big careers, she feels like she’s always behind them, never the same. She teaches, takes care of her parents and still feels like she’s not doing enough, like she’s supposed to do more.
That is, until she gets a new pupil in her class whose mother makes her rethink everything she ever presumed about her life, who makes her rethink everything she believed in.
Spring is coming and that means teaching about plants and colours and how things grow. A tour around the town with Kim’s class, trying to spot spring flowers and a couple of little lambs, brings the women closer together. But it’s not until an intimate moment at a dinner party that things start to get intense.
This year, will there be more than just flowers blooming on the island?
