Sinossi

After giving up her tail for an international banker, Isabella of the Mediterranean kingdom is aged, weathered, and abandoned on the fog-drenched shores of southwest England. She faces her human journey as a plain and practically destitute fifty-three-year-old woman.

With the help of a magic tablet and online mermaid support, she reinvents herself as a career counselor, motivational speaker, and writer of self-help books. Along the way, she encounters a cast of unforgettable characters, among them former mermaids, supportive and not-so-supportive women, deserving and undeserving men, and several New Agers. As Isabella evolves into Barbara Davies, she embraces her middle-aged body, heals her bruised heart, and learns to love again.

This contemporary version of The Little Mermaid offers hope and inspiration to anyone who has been dumped, deceived, or demoted. It will also appeal to mermaid enthusiasts.

4.0 su 5 stelle Mermaid stranded in a 53 year old body reinvents herself. 19 settembre 2013
Di Susan J. Berger - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
A mermaid stranded in a fifty-three year old woman's body reinvents herself as a lovely successful woman.
It's a fun concept. In the world Joanne Giudoccio invented inBetween Land and Sea , many mermaids sacrificed their lives as mermaids for love of a man. Isabella was sent to land as a punishment for disobedience.
Isabella, who is given a new identity as a middle aged overweight woman named Barbara, is determined to succeed on her own terms without the support of a man.
I followed Isabella's adventures with great interest as, with the help of a magic tablet and a numbers mermaid, she learned to survive in her new environment.
The adventure is absorbing. Along the way, Barbara tames her new body and finds romance.
A very enjoyable read. Thanks, Joanne.

4.0 su 5 stelle Interesting story of learning, adaptation, and growth 18 settembre 2013
Di C.D. Hersh - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Joanne Guidoccio's book, Between Land and Sea is the story of a woman's journey. Not a typical journey as Isabella, aka Barbara Davies, was a mermaid. She is human now, on her own, her only lifeline a face on a tablet to connect to her past and give her guidance and assistance on how to cope on land in the small town of Carden, Canada. This once proud, eternally youthfully mermaid must now deal with a rather frumpy, middle age, overweight body. If she fails to find a mate within a year, when the electronic lifeline and free rent expires, she will be forced to fend for herself. This is a very interesting story of learning, adaptation, and growth as Barbara deals with her past mistakes and learns to live among humankind on her own.

4.0 su 5 stelle I loved the protagonist! Humorous, light story 21 ottobre 2014
Di Majanka - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Once upon a time, Isabella was a mermaid. Now, she’s a middle-aged, overweight woman named Barbara. In Between Land and Sea, Isabella gave up her tail to be with an international banker. But when she’s punished, and loses more than just her tail, but also her youth and good looks, he leaves her. Now she’s stuck in a body she never wanted, and in a world she never wanted to belong to, and she struggles to live with her new reality.

Thankfully she has a magic tablet to help her, and an online mermaid support group. Barbara is determined not to rely on others, and not to need a man to help fend for her – she wants to be able to fend for herself. She does an admirable job of dealing with her new life, and of never giving up.

I loved this book. It’s at times hilarious, at times strangely eye-opening. The plot is great – original and entertaining. But the main reason why I absolutely adored this, would be Barbara. Why do all main characters tend to be either young (teens or twenties) or in their thirties? Barbara is in her fifites and she’s much more entertaining. She struggles with all the things women in their fifties typically struggle with – weight issues, getting tired faster than in the decades before, some type of midlife crsis, and so on.

This is an entertaining, solid book, recommended to everyone looking for a new type of book, offering something unexpected and a protagonist you can’t help but root for.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Between Land and Sea drops you right into the shoes of Barbara, a former mermaid who was dumped by the man who she gave up her tail for....ouch! Life is tough....Barbara is tougher! She is determined to not only to get over losing her youth, beauty, and powers but to succeed in her human life without being dependent on others.
Author Joanne Guidoccio combines fun characters with descriptive settings and a truly inspiring tale. Between Land and Sea is unique, inspiring, and enjoyable to read. Can't wait for another book by this author!
I'd love to see a prequel written about the Bella mermaids and their adventures!
