Some years have passed since the Crow-Girl set off on a journey, met Eidi and her mother, Foula, along with a few others, and persuaded them to come live near the little cove where a brook runs out to the sea. But when Foula has another baby, Eidi feels there’s no longer room for her in the settlement. So she leaves Crow Cove to make her own way in the world, hoping to help her old friend Rossan with his wool out on the heath. Fate, however, brings her to a harbor town where she must find work, and she takes a position as a weaver in the household of a wealthy merchant. In town, Eidi faces disturbing reminders of her past. She also meets a neglected boy named Tink and soon makes a decision that changes the course of both of their futures.

The second book in the Children of Crow Cove series is beautifully written in Bodil Bredsdorff’s spare style and will deeply satisfy fans of The Crow-Girl and new readers alike.

The close of Bredsdorff's exquisite U.S. debut, Crow-Girl (2004), found its title character peacefully ensconced in her seaside home with her "found" family.
