Mermaids Don’t Drown

“The ships rattled and crashed. They groaned, in the swirling and thundering surf, on waves that were higher than the dam itself. And the next moment, blocks of basalt hurtled through the air. They flew away, like flakes in a shaken snow globe. And that was the end of the Langendam.”
Mermaids Don’t Drown is an exciting historical story based on true – and sometimes unbelievable – events. It is a story about sneaking onto a ship and sailing along the Scheldt to Antwerp, about a doctor who might have killed his wife, about the disaster that befell the then-largest mussel fishing village, and about
how to face the harshest storms. In short, it is a book to dive into and (briefly) drown in.
