"It is in the old lore, that the touch of the mermaid changes us. Not everyone can see it, you know...[The mermaid is] not an angel, but I felt that God was working through her...." (pg. 121)

A simply beautiful twist on the classic tale told both by the Mermaid and the Princess, that shares what the mermaid left behind. "There are people all over the world who carry the mermaid inside them that otherworldly beauty and longing and desire that made her reach for Heaven when she lived in the darkness of the sea." (pg. 240)

The mermaid in me loves this book.
