The basis for the classic children's movie The Secret of Roan Inish, directed by John Sayles, this poetic book is in print for the first time in decades, and is a thoughtful meditation on family and Scottish folklore.

About the Author

Rosalie K. Fry (1911-1992) was the author and illustrator of children's books. Born in Vancouver Island, she attended school in Swansea, Wales, and then the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. She served in the Women's Royal Naval Service from 1939-1945, and lived most of her adult life in Swansea.

Reviews

"The setting is vividly evoked, and the fantasy elements are woven seamlessly into the homey details of domestic island life. Still fresh and immediate sixty years after its publication." --Martha V. Parravano, The Horn Book Magazine

"This exquisitely-written, mystical tale is unique, neither fact, nor pure fancy. As one young reader said, it could be true, but it really wasn't. Maybe this is why it provokes deep afterthought, and wonder." --The New York Times "A poetic story which rests heavily on the folk traditions of the Western Isles and which contains much of that poetry of language and conception native to the traditional Scots." --Kirkus Reviews
