The Mermaid's Sister by Carrie Anne Noble

Started: 29th April

This was a free download onto my Kindle (I get four free books to choose from each month).

It tells the story of sisters Clara and Maren, and their almost-brother, O'Neill. Maren begins to transform into a mermaid, and Clara realises that to save Maren's life, she must take her from their mountain home, to the sea, and so she and O'Neill set off on their emotional and perilous journey.

Needless to say, this is a bit of a fantasy story, and I wasn't really into it to begin with, which is why it took me so long to finish it (I probably didn't even look at it for the whole of May). I picked it up again intending to finish it quickly, only because I had Outlander by Diana Gabaldon lined up for my next read! However, as I got back into the story, I actually really started to enjoy it. The best words I can think of to describe it are that it is 'sweet' and 'charming'; just a lovely, gentle fairy-tale (though not without moments of danger), and with the odd mythical creature here and there.

I believe it falls into the Young Adult genre, but it's just as suitable for grown-ups too!
