What's the Name of That Book??? discussion

UNSOLVED: One specific book > Literary fiction, a boy loves a girl who believes her mother was a mermaid, and the girl spends a lot of time in a river, but it turns out the mother was a black woman who was ostracized by the community. 2010s, I think, possibly earlier.

Sarah | 1 comments I believe the boy had fought in a war. The girl either drowns or has a close call. I think she has gold coins from her mother that she believes proves that her mother was a mermaid. I think the girl often goes to look at a painting of her mother in a museum or gallery.
