Thanks to Mieneke AKA A Fantastical Librarian for choosing SONG OF THE SEA MAID as one of her top 15 most anticipated books of 2015.
Mieneke was very supportive of THE VISITORS this year and I remember seeing her lovely review of it on the very day of the book launch – and it gave me a wonderful boost when I was feeling terrified as the launch party (and my speech) were looming…
Here’s what she has to say:
‘Rebecca Mascull – Song of the Sea Maid
I loved Mascull’s 2014 debut The Visitors, which was a fascinating and spell-binding story of a blind and deaf girl, who learns to communicate through the guidance of her governess. It’s still one of my favourite books for 2014, so obviously I’m looking forward to Mascull’s sophomore effort, which promises to be as fascinating. Song of the Sea Maid is set in the eighteenth century and featuring a woman who overcomes societal expectations and limitations to follow her love of science. Count me in!’
Thanks Mieneke and a very Merry Xmas to you. 🙂 xxx
