Available Now: Mermaid Drowning, Terry Jacobs and Tiffany Jacobs
Evelyn has a husband who adores her, three wonderful children, a fulfilling career, and a past which harbors a secret she denies even to herself. After ten years of a perfect marriage, Evelyn’s husband, Sam, discovers her secret within the pages of a forgotten journal. Overwhelmed by a sense of betrayal, he can no longer live with Evelyn and wants her out of his life. As Sam searches through Evelyn’s past, looking for a way to gain full custody of their three children, Evelyn must face her fears and a past of violence and death.
Mermaid Drowning is a powerful story of family upheaval, but at its heart it is far more. It is a riveting and thought-provoking look into the lies we tell ourselves, what it means to be family, and a love that defies the bonds of death.

Excerpt from the Eugene Weekly’s Review
“Living in seemingly effortless harmony…a couple and their three children are in for a rude awakening. Is an untold truth a lie? Mermaid Drowning is the story of a secret that shouldn’t matter–but does. Equally sentimental and riveting… Mermaid is a primer on tolerance, shaking you to your core in search of accountability for the words that some people put in God’s mouth.”
