When Cluck rescues Lace from a disastrous chemical explosion, his touch instead immerses her in his world and an enchanting relationship begins. This is magical realism at its best. The writing is heartbreakingly exquisite.
An old feud, a new love, a long buried secret, a flash of mermaid tails, a flutter of fairy wings infuse this tender story with the power of fear, love and honesty.
