Overview


A choice between love and survival . . .

Lucy's family is excited to spend the summer in Bar Harbor, Maine. Her minister father is pleased to preside over such a prestigious congregation, and his social-climbing wife is ecstatic at the chance to find a rich husband for her daughter.

Yet Lucy wants nothing to do with the Bar Harbor social scene; she's simply excited to spend the summer by the sea, watching the waves from her favorite spot on the cliff. Despite having never gone swimming, Lucy feels an intense connection to the ocean, and meets a handsome ship-builder who shows Lucy a world she's never known, yet somehow always longed for.

However, her mother will stop at nothing to keep Lucy and the ship builder apart, even if it means throwing Lucy into the arms of a wealthy man with a dangerous secret. Can Lucy break free and embrace her destiny as a daughter of the sea? Or is she doomed to waste away in a gilded cage, slowly dying of a broken heart?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Daughters of the Sea: Hannah

“Many will identify with independent and winsome Hannah as she tries to find her place in the world.” – School Library Journal

“This novel has menacing, almost gothic overtones as well as a strong sense of time, place, and class distinctions.” – Booklist

Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
What would happen if you were to cross Jane Austen with Hans Christian Anderson? The result would probably be very similar to the "Daughters of the Sea" series by Kathryn Lasky. This book is the third one in the series and all those readers who fell in love with the mermaid sisters Hannah and May will likely kindle an equal devotion to Lucy, a minister's adopted daughter struggling to find her place in society. Lucy's social climbing parents are thrilled when she attracts the attention of a stylish duke but Lucy is wary of the charming duke and finds herself drawn to the loving arms of Phin, the handsome ship builder. Meanwhile Lucy discovers the wonderful truth about who she really is and discovers she has two equally beautiful and enchanting sisters, Hannah and May. Trouble brews when the spurned duke seeks revenge and winds up murdered. When Hannah is wrongfully accused her sisters must do all they can to clear her name, but Lasky leaves readers with a cliffhanger ending and Lucy's fate is unclear. Reviewer: Miranda McClain

    Lucy is a continuation of the Daughters of The Sea series, but as with the second book, it starts with Lucy's story before Hannah and May eventually get pulled within as well. Lucy is a girl with artistic talents and have a great fascination with the sea - much like her two mer-sisters. Her father is a minister, and her mother is a vain, snobbish woman whose ultimate goal is to find Lucy the perfect husband. However, Lucy falls for someone else instead - someone who has no social standing, yet shares her love for the sea.

    I have mixed feelings for this book. I started reading this with much anticipation, as I hoped things will finally be resolved, whether or not the sisters decide to live on land or in the sea. It started out fine - with Kathryn Lasky's trademark smooth, dreamy writing style, and I was excited to fine out more about Lucy.

    However, towards the end of the story, Lasky inserted a plot twist which I totally didn't see coming, but it was rather silly. I mean, the motives were too shallow, and I couldn't see the point behind all the drama and fuss. And the story of the three sisters were never given a decent ending. It just ended. Randomly. I'm wondering if this is one of the author's habits? Leaving readers hanging on a cliffhanger at the end of a book (first / second in a trilogy) is a good thing, but ending your last book just like that? Without any conclusion or further explanation? That's just plain weird.

    Overall, Lucy is a fairly decent book, though I personally thought that it should have been better. I wished to see the respective conclusions for the sisters' star-crossed romance. Will they forsake their love to embrace their true self or sacrifice their special bond with the sea to unite with their loved ones? And how will Lucy's story end? Curiouser and curiouser!

    I absolutly loved this book! Lucy bring a different look into the series, and is just as good as May and Hannah. This book takes place the summer after May concludes, and i loved how the book also followed the Hannah and Mays stories by expaining what happened to them after their book
    I seriously cannot wait for the next book!!

    Cliffhanger

    This book is so good but it ends in a cliffhanger. Plus it never really talks about her sisters.
