#StoriesInVerse #Folklore #Selkie #Seals

One lonely seal

in the midst of the ocean

rolls on the waves

to the rhythmical motion.

The seal watches over

the child on the sand.

Her lovely young daughter

born of the land.

On Midsummer’s Eve seals swim up onto the sand, shed their skin and transform into beautiful young women to give thanks to the mysterious Moon Goddess.

Lost in dance, no one notices a shimmering sealskin being stolen; leaving one beautiful Selkie trapped on the land forever.

Can an unlikely friend help her reclaim her skin, or is she destined to remain forever in human form?

‘Seal Mother’ – a magical Selkie tale of love, loss and deceit, told in verse. (Click image to enlarge)

The Boy From the Streets by Maria Gibbs

Good afternoon! I just finished reading “The Boy From the Streets” by Maria Gibbs, and wanted to share it with you all. I’ll leave a link at the bottom because really, I cannot explain how good this book is. You just have to read it. Below is my official review. Go check it out.

Give me a book that can make me feel something. Let me fall in love, rage against injustice, weep for what is lost. “The Boy from the Streets” delivered it all.

At first blush, it seems to be a modern take on “The Prince and the Pauper.” Without giving away too much of the plot, Pedro and Jose are separated at birth. One boy is adopted by wealthy parents while the other is discarded like so much trash. Years later, they’re reunited, and that’s about where the similarities end with, “The Prince and the Pauper.”

Every time I thought I had this book figured out, it twisted. I lost sleep reading well into the night. I picked it up again when I woke. I spent an hour choking back tears while my husband looked at me as if I’d lost my mind. My poor dog brought me his favorite toy to comfort me. Still, I continued reading to the bittersweet ending.

I absolutely loved it! I’d recommend this book to anyone who loves a well-written tale. The descriptions are beautifully done, and the story speaks to the endurance of the human spirit. Brava to Ms. Gibbs. She’s quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite authors.
