Book Review: Mermaid: A Twist On A Classic Tale By Carolyn Turgeon

About the book (Goodreads):

Princess Margrethe has been hidden away while her kingdom is at war. One gloomy, windswept morning as she stands in a convent garden overlooking the icy sea, she witnesses a miracle: a glittering mermaid emerging from the waves, a nearly drowned man in her arms. By the time Margrethe reaches the shore, the mermaid has disappeared into the sea. As Margrethe nurses the handsome stranger back to health, she learns that not only is he a prince, he is also the son of her father’s greatest rival. Sure that the mermaid brought this man to her for a reason, Margrethe devises a plan to bring peace to her kingdom.

Meanwhile, the mermaid princess Lenia longs to return to the human man she carried to safety. She is willing to trade her home, her voice, and even her health for legs and the chance to win his heart….   

 

 

 

My thoughts:


I really like this book. However I really dislike the princess for the last half. She was turn into a selfless love hungry manic. The mermaid was so well written. I liked how the book told both sides of the story.

 

 

I gave this book 5 stars out of 5 stars.
