Shadow in the Sea

Readers will return to Windwaithe Island once again. When sixteen-year-old Sadelyn Hanson washes up on the shores of Windwaithe Island, her beauty and the strange marks on her wrist make superstitious locals suspect she is a mermaid. Feigning amnesia, Sade hides a far worse secret: she was sailing to her own murder trial when she was thrown overboard by the real killer, the cunning and cruel Captain Westwood.

Sade's quiet effort to rebuild her life on the island is threatened when she meets an actual young merman. Unable to speak his language, Sade still longs for the warm companionship he offers, despite the locals' dire legends about merfolk and their dark magic. But her confused feelings for the impossible boy become the least of her problems when Captain Westwood's ship docks at Windwaithe. With nowhere to escape, Sade must trust in the one person who doesn't fear the merfolk. A woman who had dealings with them herself—years ago

The Best Books EVER!

Okay, all you readers out there. Today I want to know which book you have read and re-read the very most in your lifetime? Which book do you find yourself returning to when you have a few moments to spare--or better yet--when you don't have time, but you read it anyway? Which books do you mark your favorite passages in? Which novel do you have memorized so well, you know exactly which page to turn to so you can read a favorite part again and again? I think the story I've re-read the most is the Emily of New Moon Series. I loved that series as a child. Much more than I loved Anne of Green Gables by the same author. I liked Anne a lot, but I loved Emily more. A close second would probably be Beauty by Robin McKinley.

What about you? Which are your most re-read books?

Book Review!

Another great book review, this time by The Lost Entwife. (Who else just loves this delightfully whimsical name?) Every once in a while an author will find a reviewer that completely understands what it is what they were trying to communicate when writing their book. A real kindred spirit. Thanks for taking the time to write about Forbidden Sea, Lost Entwife. You actually brought tears to my eyes as I read it! Click here to read the full review.
