The beast approaches by night, his eyes filled with desire. The Mount stands dark in the bay and its residents will be forever changed by his arrival. Secrets whisper in the folds of his cloak as his heavy steps sink deep into the sands of time. Set in western Cornwall, "Where Seagulls Fly" is an evocative story about a social outcast seeking refuge with the monks of St Michael's Mount. Arriving in the year 1274, he hopes to escape the cruel life he has known. A poignant friendship develops with one of the monks, but others fear his horrifying presence, a fear which threatens the fragile peace he has found.
