Beckon the sea,
I'll come to thee....
Shed seven tears,
perchance seven years....
Gwen Cooke was 10 years old when chronic sleepwalking led her onto a midnight beach and
into a world of Celtic magic, mystery and danger.
Was her encounter with a boy with dark, slightly tilted eyes a dream? Were the words he
whispered before vanishing, a spell?
In the wake of gossip over what really happened to Gwen, her family moved away from their
seaside home and Gwen never saw the boy again.
Now seventeen, Gwen is returning to her childhood home. She says it's because her
grandmother asked for her help at the Sea Horse Inn. But Gwen knows it's time to
go back for another reason: She yearns for the sea. Perhaps the sea itself is
calling to her. Perhaps the memory of the boy and his haunting words are drawing
her back to the place they met. Perhaps it's time for her to face her destiny.
