Day 77 – When We Believed In Mermaids by Barbara O’Neal
Okay, this is another time when picking one book by the author is almost impossible. I’m choosing Mermaids because it’s her most recent and it is fabulous.
But pretty much everything Barbara O’Neal writes is wonderful (as are the books she wrote under Barbara Samuel).
I can’t pick a favorite title, but she’s absolutely a favorite author. If you haven’t read her, then oh my, do you have some great reading in front of you.
You might as well start with When We Believed In Mermaids, but really, you can start anywhere. #HappyReading!
When We Believed In Mermaids
From the author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets comes an emotional new tale of two sisters, an ocean of lies, and a search for the truth.
Her sister has been dead for fifteen years when she sees her on the TV news…
Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It’s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit’s world. Live coverage of a club fire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable. And unmistakable. With it comes a flood of emotions—grief, loss, and anger—that Kit finally has a chance to put to rest: by finding the sister who’s been living a lie.
After arriving in New Zealand, Kit begins her journey with the memories of the past: of days spent on the beach with Josie. Of a lost teenage boy who’d become part of their family. And of a trauma that has haunted Kit and Josie their entire lives.
Now, if two sisters are to reunite, it can only be by unearthing long-buried secrets and facing a devastating truth that has kept them apart far too long. To regain their relationship, they may have to lose everything.
