I wasted a credit on this?

These are the kind of books that makes me wonder why I joined a audiobook club. no real story, no explanations. The only thing got out of the story was if mermaids stay in water long they forget who they were in their still human bodies. Wasn't worth the credit. wow.

Beautiful

A beautiful short story that packs so much into just a little space. Definitely worth the low price - just be aware it IS a short story, not a novel.
