More than a century ago lighthouse keeper Linus Harris left his beloved wife and waded into the ocean with three other men to reunite with their mermaid lovers The mysterious Mermaid Mutiny of has become legend for the residents of Cradle Harbor Maine honored by the town’s Mermaid Festival every August when wind chimes are hung from seaside porches to drown out the alluring sound of mermaid song For thirty The Mermaid PDFEPUBfive year old Tess Patterson t. there a better backdrop for a story than the ocean beaches lighthouses and mermaids I think not Erika Marks brings to life a story of The Mermaid Mutiny of 1888 to life with Lydia and Linus Harris Linus is the lighthouse keeper in Cradle Harbor Maine in 1887 Together they are simply a young couple setting up a home and hoping to start a family When an unfathomable event occurs changes everything for this couple and the town A century later the legend of Lydia and Linus lives on and is celebrated with a Mermaid Festival For Tess Patterson this is a magical time Tess is a local artist who recently was commissioned to make a mermaid wood carved statue for the townTess is looking for acceptance from the townspeople with their noses in the air Whereas Tom Grace new in town isn't looking to please the community of Cradle Harbor He just wants a fresh start for himself and younger brother Dean Tom and Tess make the perfect couple but is their desire to change their pasts going to doom their future I LOVED The Mermaid Collector I had begun reading it the day before my dad passed away and finished it the week after his funeral As I read the last few chapters I couldn't put The Mermaid Collector down Not only was this a fantastically written story but Marks wrote with such truth As I read at 3am in the morning tears fell Erika Marks did an amazing job of weaving the two stories together I was completely taken in with Lydia's story You get tid bits along the way so you get an idea of how it will end yet as it draws to a close you want a different ending I just couldn't accept that was how it was going to endAs I read about Tess Tom I just kept wanting them to let go of their past knowing you hinder your future if you are always looking backwardsThe only thing that could have made this a better read was if I could have read it on a New England beach with a hot tea wearing a cable knit sweater with the background sound of waves crashing and the tingling sounds of wind chimes An absolute perfect fall read I highly recommend THE MERMAID COLLECTOR

The Mermaid CollectorHe legend is than folklore it’s proof of life’s magic A hopeless romantic who is profoundly connected to the ocean in which she lost her mother Tess ekes out a living as a wood carver and longs to find a love as mystical as the sea But when she’s hired to carve the commemorative mermaid sculpture for the coming festival a chance to win the town’s elusive acceptance might finally be in her grasp For Tom Grace life’s magic was lost at eighteen when. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads Wow The mermaid Collector was a pleasantly delightful read The read was light heartwarming sad happy and magical I managed to finish the book in just a day because I couldn't find myself able to put it downI love the way the author did the parallel time difference to show the readers were the mermaid legend originated at that town it flowed smoothly with the current story line The characters were interesting the battles that they fought from losing a death one at an early age to alcoholism to disorders made their stories uniue in their struggles Dealing with relationship between Tess and Buzz Tess and the town and two very different brothersThe book was written very well and I loved it It touched on things and different perspectives As sad as the Lydia story turned out i almost ache for I will be looking forward to other books written by this author
