Today is a very special day here at damppebbles. Today I am thrilled (BEYOND thrilled!) to have a stunning cover reveal to share with you. And I’m honoured to share this cover reveal with the lovely Liz over at Liz Loves Books.
The book in question is the beautiful Sealskin written by debut award-winning author Su Bristow. Sealskin is an exquisite retelling of the selkie legend, prominent in folklore across the globe and retold with a modern twist.
Karen at Orenda Books is thrilled to have acquired the World English Language Rights for Sealskin and says, ‘I was swept away by this simply beautiful book – a flawless retelling of a legend that features in the folklore of so many nations. Set in a Scottish fishing village, Sealskin is an exquisitely written, subtle story of a small community’s response to difference, studying the nuances of personal relationships and how an outside influence recasts and fortifies social ties. Every character, every relationship, every aspect of the setting and the story is finely drawn, with a compelling timelessness that is at once relevant and able to transport us to a different world. Sujata has an extraordinary talent for exploring social dynamics, tradition and the innate human capacity for forgiveness, acceptance and care, and this is an exceptional book on many, many levels.’
And now for that beautiful cover…
Absolutely breathtaking and one for the TBR. We do have a tiny wait as Sealskin will be published by Orenda Books in early Spring 2017 (don’t worry, it’ll be Christmas before we know it…). Until then keep an eye on the Orenda Books website for updates on this beautiful novel.
