As a young boy visiting the seaside, Jacob met his first love: a mermaid named Claritha. Three decades later, as a divorced father of a college-age son and a writer of maritime adventure stories, Jacob renews his fantastical relationship with Claritha only to discover that his son has fallen in love with the same bedazzling siren.

Despite her supernatural sexuality, Claritha, like any ordinary landlocked female, is experiencing menopause, and is in search of a man to fertilize her one remaining egg. To help make sense of his intergenerational love triangle, Jacob pens a self-help book about men and menopause and unwittingly becomes a sought-after media sensation, much to the consternation of women's groups who question his credibility.

Like the fantastic fabulism mastered by Alice Hoffman and Tom Robbins, Carol Ann Sima's imaginative, ebullient novel walks readers through a sprightly urban fairy tale where anything - even a mermaid a trois - can happen. With witty word games and playful plot twists, The Mermaid That Came Between Them turns "what if" into a sigh of "if only."
