A fantastical story of longing, love, and the call of the ocean, grounded in the powerful reality of "What if?"

Ishmael Morgan was six years old when her mother—a long-distance
swimmer—disappeared into the ocean. To comfort her, Ishmael’s father told her that her mother didn’t die but simply swam off into the sunset as a mermaid.

Ishmael hadn’t thought much of that tender lie until early one morning when her truck plunged off a cliff.

When Ishmael awakens, her memories are of impossible things. She’s sure they must be hallucinations; she seems to remember watching her own legs turn into a tail. 

Testing her theory—while putting off returning to her old life, including a cancelled wedding—Ishmael dives into the mystery of her new life—both literally and figuratively.

What if her father’s stories about her mother weren’t just stories? Could she really transform into a mermaid at will? Seeking answers, Ishmael begins a trek across land and sea into a life she hasn’t even begun to imagine.

Author Kate Smith was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina and has spent a significant portion of her adult life living on the West Coast. She now resides in the Deep South on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean with her boat captain husband and their two water-loving, brown dogs. She owns a yoga studio named after Mother Earth.
