by | Read by Samantha Hunt, Maggie Nelson [Intro.]

Fantasy • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Samantha Hunt narrates her own novel featuring a nameless narrator who descends into madness. The story is told from the perspective of a 19-year-old woman who lives in a fishing town rife with alcoholism and biting cold, known only as "up north." Hunt pours herself into the narration. The protagonist pours her heart out as she tells listeners all her wants and desires. She loves a man she cannot have, and as she explains this, her heart breaks even more--to the point that she can barely utter anything. She is so convinced that she is a mermaid that the listener begins to believe it as well. This haunting audiobook begs listeners to listen again for the clues about what is real and what is fantasy.
