    Description
    The haunting and magical story of a young woman's search for her mother . . .

    Growing up motherless in an isolated community, Malin Reed has always been made to feel different from everybody else. The fact that, according to Malin's father, the absent mother was actually a mermaid only makes matters worse.
    When Malin's father dies, leaving behind nothing but his stories, Malin's choice at last becomes clear: stay, and never feel at home, or leave and go in search of mermaids and the fantastical inheritance that, up to now, has always seemed completely out of reach.

    Apprenticed to a series of strange and wonderful characters, Malin embarks on a picaresque journey that crosses oceans and continents - from the high seas to desert plains, from a time of slavery to life in a circus - until it finally leads to a discovery that is the very last thing Malin would ever have expected . . .

    Beautifully written and hauntingly strange, set in an unspecified historical past, 'The Mermaid's Child' is a remarkable piece of storytelling, weaving together the fantastical and the inevitable through the power of the imagination.
