Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Neen Marrey, on the brink of adulthood, lives with her Aunt Ushag on the Isle of Man. Neen has outgrown the stories of her childhood, including the story of how she came to be an orphan.Rumours abound in the village. Some say Neen's mother was a merrow who tried to live on land but could not resist the pull of the ocean. Neen wants to find out the truth behind the disappearance of her mother. But perhaps she should have heeded the warning, be careful what you wish for, as you just might get it...
