Twelve-year-old Jane, steeped in sadness by the loss of her mother has become mute. She and her father leave New Zealand to live in Scotland for three months. Jane spends her day walking the shoreline where she meets Wee Mac, a telepathic dog. Jane is amazed she can, 'think-talk' with Wee Mac, then meets Hamish, a telepathic boy and they all become friends.
Angus, the bard of the village, tells stories of the seal people called, selkies, the spirits of the dead and of kelpies, horses who go under the sea. Jane decides her mum must be a selkie and is determined, with the help of Hamish and Wee Mac, to find her.
When she convinces a kelpie to take her beneath the ocean, what does she find?
