The Mermaid in Brooklyn By Amy Shearn
Book Description:SOMETIMES ALL YOU NEED IN LIFE IS A FABULOUS PAIR OF SHOES—AND A LITTLE HELP FROM A MERMAID.
Formerly an up-and-coming magazine editor, Jenny Lipkin is now your average, stretched-too-thin Brooklyn mom, tackling the challenges of raising two children in a cramped Park Slope walk-up. All she really wants is to survive the sweltering New York summer with a shred of sanity intact. But when her husband, Harry, vanishes one evening, Jenny reaches her breaking point. And in a moment of despair, a split-second decision changes her life forever.
Pulled from the brink by an unexpected ally, Jenny is forced to rethink her ideas about success, motherhood, romance, and relationships. But confronting her inner demons is no easy task. . . .
Review:This book is very well written .Amy does a Great job introducing the main character Jenny and really letting you get to know her and as any parent can relate to the struggles of raising children especially when your Husband just disappears one night after 5 years of marriage and 2 kids .This was a really good book one that I could definitely read more than once.I look forward to reading more from Amy Shearn.
