From international bestselling author of The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, Holly Ringland, comes a haunting and magical novel 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 Tasmania to Copenhagen, and then to the Faroe Islands. On her journey, Esther is guided by the stories Aura left behind: seven fairy tales about selkies, swans and women, alongside cryptic verses Aura wrote and had secretly tattooed on her body.

THE SEVEN SKINS OF ESTHER WILDING is 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.

"The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart was like a starburst over the Australian literary scene, which had us asking 'with this kind of talent, where has Holly Ringland been hiding?' The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding is an absorbing tale that is rich in folklore and natural wonder, while being a down-to-earth portrayal of a girl coming to grips with the disappearance of her beloved sister. It's a stunning book - you'll love it!" Kate, Senior Category Manager
