In Susan Fletcher’s The Silver Dark Sea, the islanders of Parla are still mourning the loss of one of their own. Four years since that loss, and a man is washed onto their shores.
Some say he is a mythical man from the sea – potent, kind and beautiful; others suspect him. For the bereft Maggie, this stranger brings love back to the isle. But as the days pass he changes every one of them, and the time comes for his story to be told.
