The Mermaid of Black Conch by

Set on an imaginary Caribbean island in the 1970s, this tantalising tale of disruption brought about by a beautiful stranger marries mythical elements with the piercing realism of everyday life. This book is accompanied with a small bottle of champagne.


This charming yet clear-eyed romance begins with a fisherman, David, lazily awaiting his catch only to snare a centuries-old mermaid, Aycayia, cursed by women jealous of her beauty. She’s drawn to the sound of the guitar he’s strumming...

The bittersweet plot kicks in when their regular secret meetings are brought to an end by Thomas and Hank, a Florida father and son trawling island waters in the hope of bagging first prize in a fishing contest. Suddenly, they’re thinking big – a sale to the Smithsonian, the cover of Time – but don’t reckon with David’s plan to rescue her...
