The River Maid by Gemma Holden

A haunting and bold new retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid set during the Napoleonic wars.

Adrianna lives with her mother in a small town overlooking the River Rhine. Taking in washing to make ends meet, it’s a simple life and Adrianna yearns for something more.

Christian, a prince, lives in the castle above the town. Trapped by duty and the responsibility his title entails, he longs for his freedom.

After a girl disappears from the town, Adrianna stumbles across the body floating in the river. Following the accident, she starts to hear a song calling her and a voice haunting her dreams. Going for a walk one morning, she meets Lorelei who turns out to be a mermaid. Lorelei steals her legs, leaving Adrianna trapped in the river. She must find a way to get her legs back and rescue the prince, who Lorelei loves. But Napoleon’s armies are sweeping across Europe and nothing will ever be the same.
