Publisher Description

World Fantasy Award winner Patricia A. McKillip tells "an enchanting fantasy that is tinged with realism and romance." (School Library Journal)

Since the day her father's fishing boat returned without him, Peri and her mother have mourned his loss. Her mother sinks into a deep depression and spends her days gazing out at the sea. Unable to control her anger and sadness any longer, Peri uses the small magic she knows to hex the sea. And suddenly into her drab life come the King's sons—changelings with strange ties to the underwater kingdom—a young magician, and, finally, love.

"McKillip is a master storyteller; her tale rings true as if it were being told from memory."—Kirkus Reviews, pointer review

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book is romantic, full of fantasy and a work of art. Her world building is descriptive; a few words is all she needs. I can only describe the setting as “ocean cottagecore”. One of my favorite reads of this year for sure.”

“This is an old-school fairy tale but written in the modern day, and I loved it. It's more of a novella than a novel, but it's beautiful crafted and really pulls you into it. I'd love to hear it read aloud, it seems like the kind of book that's made to be read by the fireside with the sea crashing outside.”
