Praise

Praise for The Mermaid’s Child and Jo Baker:

“Malin Reed, the tough, lonely, adventurous heroine of Jo Baker’s novel, has never known her mother, but her dad insists she was a mermaid. . . . Baker’s writing seduces as she recounts Malin’s outlandish journey, which takes her from the crew of a slave ship, through the desert with a broken-down circus to becoming adrift in the ocean with an ancient scholar, all the while remaining on the lookout for a glimpse of her missing parent.” —Oprah Magazine

“Like Sarah, the spirited maid at the heart of Longbourn, Malin is a strong, determined heroine who persists in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Readers won’t have any difficulty rooting for her.” —Booklist

“Baker is a novelist with a gift for intimate and atmospheric storytelling.” —Financial Times

“Some writers let you know that you’re in safe hands from the start, and Jo Baker is one of them.” —The Independent
