My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the third in the Hetty Feather series. Hetty left the seaside and her job as a mermaid and has come to Monksby to try to find her father. To say that Monksby didn't live up to her visions is an understatement. There is nothing glamorous about this little fishing village. Could imaginative Hetty Feather live in a village where the morning arrival of the fishing fleet is the biggest thing that happens? Could she see herself gutting and salting fish every day?
As much as she loves her father when a letter comes to tell her of the death of her foster father and asking her to come home, she must go. Seeing her old family is a mixed bag. In some ways, nothing has changed, and it others, everything has.
My major complaint about this book is that it appears to be the end of the Hetty books. Hopefully, the Diamond books will give us more information on Hetty's life while we follow the fascinating story of Diamond.
