Secrets of the Water Meadow by Dawn Meredith | PB

  • $2500

Dawn Meredith has created an evocative, rich world where the senses are tingled and love is deep as the Norwegian fjord itself. 


All her life Freya has been told that the havfruer of the deep fjords are dark angels who lure children into the water and drown them. But Freya is certain that if she sings a havfrue to the shore, they can be friends. To her surprise and joy, it works! Meanwhile, in Freya’s family, secrets come to the surface and all the adults are upset. Freya’s sister Lisbet suddenly becomes angry and depressed holding in a secret of her own. And so Freya seeks comfort and advice from Lorelei, her havfrue friend, that no one else has seen. When her sister falls into the cold waters and is in danger of drowning, can Freya really trust this mysterious, oddly beautiful creature to help? Or will Lorelei choose the darker side of her nature?


No matter what conflict simmers in the Askvold family, the ties are strong and the patience to persist in healing wins out.
