Product Description

Once there was a man who fell in love with a mermaid. He swam down into the sea to be with her, and was never seen again… Sapphire’s father told her that story when she was little. When he’s lost at sea she can’t help but think of the old myth. Then, the following summer, Sapphy meets Faro – an enigmatic Mer boy. Diving down into Ingo, she discovers an intoxicating world of pure sea hidden beneath the crags of Cornwall’s Zennor coast. But Sapphy doesn’t just crave the wild world below the waves; she longs to see her father once more. And she’s sure she can hear him singing across the water: I wish I was away in Ingo, far across the briny sea…

  • A haunting, sea-drenched tale steeped in myth and legend
  • By Orange Prize winner Helen Dunmore, who died in 2017
  • Helen was one of the greatest writers of her generation
  • Her adult books included Birdcage Walk and The Siege

“Ingo has a haunting, dangerous beauty all of its own.” Philip Ardagh

“The electric thrill of swimming with dolphins, of racing along currents, and of leaving the world of reason and caution behind are described with glorious intensity.” Amanda Craig

    This book was very good and I have read all of the other Ingo books which I could not put down! The author has done well to start a whole new series with the same type of story but with different characters, but I think it is a bit too similar and maybe the author should’ve made it a bit differently.
