Synopsis

Mermaid by Carolyn Turgeon

While in hiding at a remote convent, a king's daughter sees a magical being dragging a shipwrecked man to the shore. The creature is a mermaid princess - the youngest daughter of the Sea Queen - but she shares more with her human counterpart than her royal blood. By saving a young man's life, both women have sacrificed their hearts. In one moment, the lives of the princesses, mortal and mermaid, are transformed forever.

Reviews

Absorbing, poignant, and heartbreaking...Readers who love fairy tale retellings will find this fresh take difficult to put down. -- Library Journal

More robust than a fractured fairy tale, Turgeon's brooding retelling gives voice to both women, fleshing out an essentially tragic tale of destiny and desire...Guaranteed to keep you guessing who - if anyone - will live happily ever after. -- Booklist

Turgeon has done a superb job of creating compelling characters and conflict from a story already familiar to readers. -- Publishers Weekly

A gothic love triangle with two equally matched heroines. This isn't kid's stuff. -- Kirkus Reviews

Vividly imagined and skillfully told, Mermaid is a dark tale that shimmers with light. --Cathy Marie Buchanan, New York Times bestselling author of The Day the Falls Stood Still

There is a part of every reader that longs to return to the days of reading fairy tales and myths, when imagination had no limitsn
