AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The people of Carrick have been whispering behind Neen's back for most of her life; ever since her father drowned and her mother disappeared.

'The townspeople say her mother was a merrow who has returned to her real home in the ocean. Neen wonders if perhaps the villagers are right. But if her mother is a merrow then what does this make Neen?

'This pitiless summer all the talk will end in trouble.

'All Neen wants is the truth.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Merrow, like Tantony, is set in the mythical world of Carrick.
