Uist Skerrie: The Inheritance
Dr. Bralley Glenn, fresh out of her residency and planning to join a prestigious practice in Baltimore is suddenly served with a rural community binder to practice for four years on the island of her birth - an island she has no memory for, her life blank since before the age of seven.
She is forced to confront her lost memories of childhood as well as deal with the archaic language and customs of the island. Two men capture her attention, a marine biologist who was her island childhood friend and a handsome, mesmerizing visitor, kin to many of the islanders through ancestral lineage. Interlaced in the day to day challenges of her new life are the myths and legends of Uist Skerrie's past and present, of love deeper than human bond and the inconceivable but entrancing lure of the islanders' tales of sea creatures known as selkies, great silver seals of the sea that shape-shift to entrancing, sensual men on land.
Bralley's professional dedication to the survival of the islanders themselves as well as the illogical suspicions of the man that drives her heart's desire, force her to make a decision that could change her life forever...
