Our February Book of the Month
The Mermaid & Mrs Hancock
Imogen Hermes Gowar

Dean says; Set in the time of Jane Austen, with a focus on women of ill repute, The Mermaid & Mrs. Hancock is an enchanting and unexpected debut. A ship owner’s captain returns from sea having traded the ship for a mermaid. Hancock enters the social world of the upper class and their courtesans showing his mermaid as a curiosity. I loved this, was drawn into this fantastical world of eighteenth century London and adored the many wonderful surprises along the way.

Indigo Blue
Jessica Watson

Jan says; Alex moves to Boreen Point, a sleepy lakeside village to live with her aunt. Expecting to be bored in the village Alex purchases an old sailing boat in need of repair and throws herself into restoring it. She is intelligent, strong and happy to make her own choices. When she meets Sam, the apprentice sailmaker who helps her with her boat she feels there is something mysterious about him. This is when the fantastical features of this novel become clear and the enjoyment and development of their relationship make this story a refreshing read.
