It has been awhile since I was able to pick up a book and read it within a normal time. But this book had me skipping homework time just to get to the next page. All worth it in the end though. So here I am, about to tell you about the book.
It started out pretty slow. So slow that it was hard to get into it. As time went on I was gripping the seats trying to figure out what was going to happen next. It starts out with two sisters by a wishing pool. One of the sisters, Maren, is under the water and has been for quite awhile, just breathing under water. The other sister, Clara, is just watching her and trying to get her to surface. Then their Auntie Verity calls them. As the story goes on we are told of how the sisters came to be, as well as their almost-brother O’Neill. I don’t want to give away their story because it is a lovely story that should only be read by your eyes for the first time.
As time goes on Maren starts to slowly turn into a mermaid due to the story of her coming to Llainfair Mountain. And the story behind Auntie and Scarff comes to light as well and is a nice, short love story. Everything in the book makes more sense as time goes on. The book has a very nice flow and just when you think you have the next page predicted, BAM something new happens.
A Clara, Maren and O’Neill go on their journey to take Maren to the ocean their caravan gets lite on fire and they get rescued by a family in show business. And the pay their “debt” they are forced to entertain as well. We all think that the father is the bad guy but as time goes on, well you will have to read the book to find out the while truth.
I would defiantly recommend this book. It is a page turner. A nice blend of love, faith, hope, adventure and heroism. “The Mermaids Sister” by Carrie Anna Noble is one to get. I got the book through being an Amazon Prime member but it is available for Kindle at $4.99. It is also available in paperback.
I encourage you to read the book, it didn’t seem like my type of book but I ended up loving it. I give this book 5 stars.
