Description:
Near the island of Black Conch, a fisherman sings to himself while waiting for a catch. But David attracts a sea-dweller that he never expected - Aycayia, an innocent young woman cursed by jealous wives to live as a mermaid. When American tourists capture Aycayia, David rescues her and vows to win her trust. Slowly, painfully, she transforms into a woman again. Yet as their love grows, they discover that the world around them is changing - and they cannot escape the curse for ever.

Set on a tiny Caribbean island, this is the story of Aycayia, cursed by those jealous of her beauty and destined to live for centuries as a mermaid. Just as her tender love affair with a villager, David, is beginning, Aycayia is dragged from the sea by Westerners on a fishing trip. It’s a story of disruptive outsiders, a village that begins to reveal its truths, and inevitably, a story of loss. I really enjoyed the book - it’s a great blend of fantasy with grounded reality, and makes for a fantastic audiobook too.
