AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A haunting tale of love, music, and magic on the stormy coast of Scotland. After the loss of his wife, Scottish fiddle player Richard Brennan moves to Australia to escape the ghosts of his former life. Six years later, he returns for his father's funeral and decides to remain in his father's desolate cottage in the north of Scotland, gathering together the threads of his former life, scratching out a living playing music. Then Richard meets Ailish, the enigmatic young woman [whose] ethereal singing haunts the bay by moonlight. As their relationship builds, the secrets of his family's past are brought to light, one by one, leaving them to confront a history that is both terrifying and fantastic—a legacy that may well cost Richard his soul’.
