Product Details

Praise

“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 limits and stories were spellbinding.  Carolyn Turgeon’s Mermaid evokes just that feeling.  She is one of my new favorite writers.”–Jo-Ann Mapson, author of Solomon’s Oak and the Bad Girl Creek trilogy

“This Mermaid is resplendent with shimmering details, the dark and thrilling story behind that comforting childhood memory.   At once fresh and familiar, heartbreaking and full of hope, this dark retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid is like a gorgeous dream remembered.”—Jeanine Cummins,  bestselling author of A Rip in Heaven and The Outside Boy

As moody and atmospheric as a gothic novel, Mermaid is a heartfelt portrait of young love and all its sweet complications. Sweeping and lush, an inspired and imaginative reimagining of my favorite fairy tale.”—Timothy Schaffert, author of The Coffins of Little Hope

“Turgeon’s ability to breathe new life into the old bones of a beloved story we all think we know is unparalleled.”—Anton Strout, author of the Simon Canderous series
