The Maid Of Sker

Richard Doddridge BLACKMORE (1825 - 1900)

Who is Bardie? Her refined clothes show that she is not an ordinary girl. But why did she have to be saved from the sea by a fisherman? This story is through the eyes of the fisherman, who followed Bardie throughout her childhood and attempted to discover her roots. - Summary by Stav Nisser.
