  "Another excellent book from Carol Goodman!" by jendicus (see profile) 08/02/07

  "Wonderfully written novel" by ellentambo (see profile) 08/15/07

I picked up this book from an on-line weekly book club, and loved it. I love the story of the Silkies, mythical animals that transform themselves into women and woo unsuspecting men. The love story is a lot of fun, too. A good read.

 
  "Worth the time" by literarylady (see profile) 04/13/08

Goodman uses the past and present to tell her tale. Iris's past completely created the woman she's become. Her mother, her mother's past, her mother's unexplained death all were factors in her development, both emotionally and in her relationships. When she unraveled the fairy tale in mother's writings she uncovered the mystery of her mother's life and her death. By delving into her mother's past, she really learns who her mother was.

I had a hard time reading this and quit at about page 100 due to things going on. Well, i am so glad i picked it back up! Once it got going it was good. Slow to start, but it picks up and ends up to be a good read.
