The Black Swans is a retelling of the Irish legend of the Children of Lir set in contemporary western Maine. The four members of a traditional Irish band bring music and magic to the small town of Antrim as well as romance for a local girl. But can she help them break an ancient curse by the Fae?
Taisie MacDonnell has grown up in the small town of Antrim, Maine and works at the local knitting shop. When she attends a craft and agricultural fair she meets the members of the Black Swans, an Irish traditional band. She is especially attracted to Conn, the youngest of the siblings in the band. But he is hiding a terrible secret, an ancient curse handed down by the Fae. It is up to Taisie and her friends to find the magic that will break the curse and help Conn and his siblings win free forever.
This is a sweet and charming contemporary retelling of an ancient Irish legend. Here we have a happy ever after ending unlike the original story where there is only sadness and death for the Children of Lir.
