Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670060763, Hardcover)

Eleni didn’t choose to be a twilight child; it chose her. Born on the longest day of the year in the northern country of Finland, Eleni can communicate with creatures unseen by others—the tontuu of the sauna, the blue men of the Minch, and the brounies of the Scottish highlands. Part of her life is touched by magic, but the other is touched by sorrow. After losing her home, her family, and the boy she loves, Eleni finds comfort and friendship in the little town of Tobermorie. But as much as she wants to call it home, she feels the pull of someone, and something, stronger.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:09:14 -0400)

Taken from eighteenth-century Finland by her father, teenager Eleni eventually finds a home in Scotland, receiving help along the way from brounies, fairies, and other creatures she has the ability to see and talk with.
