  • “This book has so much representation in its characters with autism, dyslexia, medical issues and LGBTQ+ characters…” Emma-Louise on Goodreads and TikTok
  • “Knowing there are two more books in the series made it easier to accept that the tale was coming to an end. It can be so hard to finish a book when you are loving the story so much.” Molly on Amazon.com

Scotland’s all misty lochs and magical forests and perfect boyfriends, right?

When dance student Amalphia Treadwell embarks on a secret relationship with her charismatic new teacher, she has no idea of the danger that lurks in his school in Scotland…

Reviews for The Mermaid and the Bear

The Mermaid and the Bear by Ailish Sinclair

There’s a great review of The Mermaid and the Bear over on The Inquisitive Inkpot: “This is where I connected with Isobell: I connected with her when the fragility of her world suddenly mirrored the fragility of mine. So to speak, I met her in the details.”

And another here on Instagram: “The author has written such a triumphant tale of love, bravery, and true magic for these women and all women.”

If you like castles, Scotland, history, witches, stone circles and Christmas done medieval-style, you might like THE MERMAID AND THE BEAR. There’s also a love story.

  1. These are lovely photos. I’m heading to the coast tomorrow and can’t wait to get out on the sand and hear the waves crashing. It’s the one thing I miss at my home in the mountains. Your excellent reviews are well deserved. Enjoy! – oh, and just checking – did you get my emails with the Miss Livingstone documents? I hope you have a good weekend! -Sheri

  2. As soon as I saw your post I new Ailish I new straight away we had been there on our trip around Scotland in 2018, we stayed at a marvellous place called the Tufted Duck right on the beach, very beautiful !

      1. That’s so neat! That’s how I would have grown up, if I could have picked, haha. Where in Scotland are you from? My great grandparents came from Paisley and Glasgow.

  3. amazing photography.Beautiful! I have nominated you for an award. Check out my post #@LET’S BLOG AWARD. Don’t forget to answer the questions in the end.

  4. This was lovely… even without photos images it would fill the reader’s mind with images. Thanks for stopping at my blog. I’m moving from poetry to fiction for awhile, but poetry is buried deep in this writer’s heart.
