Escape to the ocean this summer with the entrancing, unforgettable winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2020.

'Mesmerising' MAGGIE O'FARRELL
'A unique talent' BERNARDINE EVARISTO

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 . . .
