The minute the plane becomes airborne, Professor Matt Macinnes realizes that the pilot has made a major mistake. Matt and his colleague professor Wallace Cameron are flying back to England from a conference in Norway. The severe storm over the North Sea is more than the plane can handle.

Rainey Macinnes is impatiently waiting for the return of her beloved husband Matt when she gets the heart-shattering news that his plane has crashed.

Their nine-year-old daughter Carrie insists that her father is not dead, but with the Selkies. Being no stranger to fairies or the power of Celtic magic, Rainey and her 18-year-old daughter Sasha are determined to act. Kyle Maclennon, a teaching assistant of professor Camerons, agrees to help.

From Carries descriptions, Matt must be somewhere near Orkney and an Island of Seals. Kyles knowledge of a Viking legend may provide the key to both rescuing Matt and righting a centuries-old tragedy.

CIRCLE OF TIME is Lynn Hannas remarkable sequel to her outstanding debut novel, The Starry Child. Ms. Hanna demonstrates a rare gift for original storytelling that is destined to make her a best-seller. (Sep., 313 pp., $6.99)
