A little mermaid. A prince to save. Only silence can break the spell.
Once upon a time...
The mermaid Margareta saved Prince Erik from a shipwreck. Wanting to see the prince again, Margareta strikes a bargain with the Master of Beacon Isle. If she saves his sons from a terrible curse, he will reunite her with Prince Erik. All she has to do is stay silent until the curse is broken.
Silence is a virtue...until Prince Erik arrives early, searching for the mermaid who saved his life.
Can two hearts speak louder than words?

Margareta is a mermaid, or at least part mermaid (her father says she is a siren). She has agreed to remain silent (for how long she doesn’t know) in order to break a curse put on her brothers (they have been turned into crows). Years of silence have not broken the curse, and she is losing the Prince she loves. What can she do? On a beautiful day when Margareta was returning to the beach after some mermaid time to herself, the solution presents itself in the form of a love-struck prince, some angry birds, and an even angrier enchantress. In Silence, Demelza Carlton has created a clever retelling of the Little Mermaid. The story and characters are familiar, with a couple of intense twists. This engaging version of a favorite fairytale is narrated beautifully by Mary Sarah.
