This short book is based on a well known story in Welsh folklore about a herd boy who marries a faery from under the lake. Before her father will allow her to marry him however, he has to choose between her and her identical twin sister. The traditional story follows the faery who marries the human and lives above the lake, but it does not tell us what happened to the rejected one. I tell the traditional tale, but give additional material to suggest the life of the twin who continues in the faery world under the lake.
