I recently picked up The Mermaid by Christina Henry when browsing around my local Barnes and Noble. I love mermaids, so the title immediately caught my eye and the historical aspect made me want to buy it immediately. The story centers around a mermaid who grows bored of the sea and eventually finds herself mostly living as a human. After a series of events, she finds herself in the circus of P.T. Barnum. I found the premise very interesting and overall pretty entertaining. This is mainly a tale of a woman, or mermaid, learning about love and life and what she wants for herself despite what other want for her. It was a little slow in parts, which is why I am only giving it 4/5 stars. Still a really good read, but not as fast paced as I was hoping for.
