In 1888, 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 has become legend for the residents of Cradle Harbor, Maine, honored by the town’s annual Mermaid Festival. For Tess Patterson, the legend is 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. For Tom Grace, life’s magic was lost when the death of his parents left him to care for his reckless brother, Dean. Now the new owner of Cradle Harbor’s prized lightkeeper’s house, Tom hopes for a fresh start. But when Tom discovers Tess working on her sculpture, an unlikely and passionate affair ignites between them that just might be the stuff of legend itself…

What Nicholas Sullivan discovers upon his journey is utterly unexpected—and it will change all of their lives, especially Maddie’s.
