Trapped on an island with an abusive husband, Selene struggles with her fear of the sea every day. But when her husband abandons her to drown, the mermaids give Selene the power to exact her revenge. How she chooses to use that power—and how she faces her fear—will change her life forever. The haunting “I Sing a Song of Mourning” originally appeared in the Breaking Waves: An Anthology for Gulf Coast Relief charity anthology (Book View Café, 2010).
