Maine, 1905: historian Frances Schmidt travels north in hopes of reading lawyer Garrett Hathaway's collection of books about mermen and mermaids. Ready to charm a crotchety old man, she's surprised to find a handsome young music-lover. But while Garrett seems more than willing to be her friend, he shies from getting any closer.
Garrett is hiding a terrible secret - no one knows that he is a merman. When he touches salt water, he sprouts gills and a blue, scaly tail. Despite his growing love for Frances, he is certain that she will see him as a monster if she ever learns the truth.
Can Frances change his mind? Or is she in over her head?
"It is ultimately a very human, very humane, story about two people, neither of whom is precisely "normal," in society's understanding of human terms. It is sweet, it is charming, it possesses an innocence and an exuberance, as well as a sense of hopefulness that I found touching and uplifting." (Janet, Dear Author)
