From international bestselling author Holly Ringland comes a haunting and magical story about joy, grief, courage and transformation.

'On the afternoon that Esther Wilding drove homeward along the coast, a year after her sister had walked into the sea and disappeared, the light was painfully golden.' The last time Esther Wilding's beloved older sister Aura was seen, she was walking along the shore towards the sea. In the wake of Aura's disappearance, Esther's family struggles to live with their loss. To seek the truth about her sister's death, Esther reluctantly travels from Lutruwita, Tasmania, to Copenhagen, and then to the Faroe Islands, following the trail of the stories Aura left behind: seven fairytales about selkies, swans and women, alongside cryptic verses Aura wrote and had secretly tattooed on her body The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding is a sweeping, deeply beautiful and profoundly moving novel about the far-reaches of sisterly love, the power of wearing your heart on your skin, and the ways life can transform when we find the courage to feel the fullness of both grief and joy.

'At its heart, this book is about finding a way to care for yourself, in a world that sometimes likes to step on its flowers.' (on The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart)
