A completely original, sweet story of mermaids, and starting over. Between Land and Sea takes an old myth, and gives it new life in the form of an excommunicated mermaid who’s been forced from the sea by her grandmother to live as a fifty-three-year-old woman in Canada. The trials she endures as she comes to terms with being an older woman, in a less than perfect body and face than she enjoyed as her time as a mermaid, leads to a believable story of starting over, reinventing yourself...becoming a butterfly.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 161935540X, Paperback)

After giving up her tail for an international banker, Isabella of the Mediterranean kingdom is aged, weathered, and abandoned on the fog-drenched shores of southwest England. She faces her human journey as a plain and practically destitute fifty-three-year-old woman. With the help of a magic tablet and online mermaid support, she reinvents herself as a career counselor, motivational speaker, and writer of self-help books. Along the way, she encounters a cast of unforgettable characters, among them former mermaids, supportive and not-so-supportive women, deserving and undeserving men, and several New Agers. As Isabella evolves into Barbara Davies, she embraces her middle-aged body, heals her bruised heart, and learns to love again. This contemporary version of "The Little Mermaid" offers hope and inspiration to anyone who has been dumped, deceived, or demoted. It will also appeal to mermaid enthusiasts.
