Publisher's Summary

I'm the last mermaid.
I'm back on shores of Lake Erie, but the cold waters are silent. There is nothing here for me but ghosts and the beach glass that litters the rocky shore. Long ago, I lived below the waves. Now, I am the sole survivor, and at long last, my mermaid glamour is leaving me.
Every day, I walk the beach. Every day, I wonder what happened to my people. The little pieces of colored glass that wash ashore give me simple pleasure. They are gifts from the lake, reminders of home. I fashion them into trinkets: necklaces, earrings, bracelets. They are beautiful things. The humans seem to love them.
Every day, I walk the beach. Nothing ever changes, until the day he says hello.
I'm dying.
It's not a question; it's a fact. The cancer is eating me alive. They told me I have six months to live, maybe less. I came home, back to Chancellor on Lake Erie, to die. The sunsets are vivid there, and I will relish every one.
I've never seen anything more beautiful than a Lake Erie sunset, until I see her.
All life is as fragile as glass.
What would you sacrifice to save the one you love?

Different . . . Engaging and Delightful

The Glass Mermaid is a departure for me . . . not the genre that I would usually be drawn to . . . but something about it caught my attention . . . I am a lover of the old, old fairy tales, Grimm Brothers and the like . . . I can't say what exactly makes this story work, but it does . . . its not smutty, its not overdone, and its just long enough . . . my only criticism is Cooper's voice . . . which is not good . . . otherwise the performance would have been stellar . . . I suppose we all dream of a bit of the ethereal . . . you will find it here in The Glass Mermaid . . . and it definitely meets my criteria of an ending that is worth the wait . . .
