the secret of roan inish

10 year-old Fiona Connelly is sent to live with her grandparents on the Donegal coast. She and her older cousin become obsessed with the island where her family lived for generations, and continually try to visit it. Fiona is also convinced that her younger brother Jamie who was swept out to sea as an infant is alive and being cared for by the seal people of her grandfather’s fables. Beautiful wild Irish scenery, and a not-too sweet story make this children’s story a cut above the usual fare. [uk, 1994]
