Summary
When the young mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist, she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land. However, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Over 100 years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. But for generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it a genetic defect of some sort, or a curse?
Summary
In alternating chapters, tells of the mermaid Syrenka's love for Ezra in 1872 that leads to a series of horrific murders, and present-day Hester's encounter with a ghost that reveals her connection to the murders and to Syrenka
