The Sea Wife by Naomi Clark
Acquired how: bought ebook
Charley is a masters student and Nessa is a selkie. They’ve been seeing each other for some time when somebody steals Nessa’s skin.
This is an utterly charming story. It’s short – only six chapters – but that’s just long enough to show the warmth and affection between the two women at the centre of the story. The description is lush and you can practically smell the sea air while reading it. Because it’s an established relationship story, the characters are freed up to do things other than just brood on their relationship and the story is all the better for it (and it makes what brooding on their relationship there is feel that much more earned).
Very much recommended.
