160 pp, 8vo (8" H). B&w illustrations. "The usual pattern of Katy's summer holiday on the island of Hrossay is disrupted by more than the invasion of her cousins Varen, Barney and Randy MacGillan, or even the last-minute arrival of the Ellis family. Strange forces enter the household with the spinning-wheel which Varen brings home: 'bewitched', Peter Harcus has said of it, but nothing of the wheel's potential, no word of warning against those who share its secret. R.E. Jackson set her most imaginative novel yet on a legend-steeped island in Orkney, where a trick of light on the sea can reveal the dark shape of human being beneath its surface, and can transform an ordinary girl in the street into a mermaid in her prime; where the powerful influence of an old wooden spinning-wheel becomes increasingly evident, and the dividing-line between fact and fancy ever harder to perceive." Very minor edge wear. Dust jacket is price clipped, very minor wrinkling at top of spine.
