The Selkies live between the Sea and the Land, and young Autakla is destined to join them in the ocean. But she fears her fate. She breaks free of her family traditions and looks to find her place even as she hears the song of the salt water in her veins. Fierce storms and even fiercer magical creatures stand in her way as she struggles to discover who she truly is.

Autakla and her cousin Muar travel with the Caribou People toward the Arctic Circle, and she learns the ways of Reindeer Mother even as she must reply to the call of Seal Woman, the Goddess of her people. Will Autakla take her place in her lineage and make the transformation to Selkie?

Suitable for 8+. Written for middle years readers to introduce younger readers to matriarchal culture, goddess and strong female role models. Also loved by adults wanting to immerse themselves in pre-patriarchal worlds.

Daughters of the Goddess Series shares the girlhood stories of the women of the Thirteen, who feature in Gina Martin's When She Wakes trilogy - Sisters of the Solstice Moon, Walking the Threads of Time and She is Here, published by Womancraft.

"Gina Martin's stories are a portal to another time and place that we almost remember, times when the feminine was honored. Her work is a precious gift to girls and women. Let her stories weave their magic around you, walk with her in remembering another past." Lucy H. Pearce, author Burning Woman
