The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan (My Rating: 5/5) I did not read this in July. I read it at the end of June. I failed to include it in my June wrap-up, which is especially awful since you can tell by my rating that I loved this. Better late than never though.
This book tells the sordid tale of an island that becomes besotted with selkies, women who come from the skins of seals. It gives the backstory of the woman with the power to bring these women forth. It goes through a few generations, and how this destroys things on the island.
