The villagers say that Morag MacLeod is a witch. She must be a witch, for she talks to the kelpie, the water horse. Is she really a witch, or a person just the same as the villagers, but one who lives life differently? Only Torquil, who has a way with animals, stands by Morag when the village turn on her.
