This is one of my favorite stories of the series, a bittersweet tale of the impossible marriage between mortal and immortal. Don't look for Tinkerbelle in this Welsh story, which is more like the Scottish tales of selkies. (And after you read my Welsh re-telling, don't miss this story from that Orkney link!)

(Rental suggestion: Filmmaker John Sayles made a memorable movie about selkies, though he moved them to Ireland).
