Swept from the Sea (1998) Print
To the world, Amy Foster is a girl who never smiles, but beneath her passive exterior, there is hidden passion.  Amy is a pagan spirit, a collector of gifts from the sea.  Her world is irrevocably changed when the sea delivers to her the most beautiful and most impossible gift of all.  Yanko Gooral is a passionate adventurer who has left his Ukrainian homeland in search of the new world - America.  When Yanko is washed overboard by a murderous tempest, he finds himself a stranger in a hostile land.  When he crosses the threshold into Amy's world, however, they form a bond too powerful to be broken by the hate and suspicion the ignorant masses of Cornwall, England, rain down on them.
