Mollie Hunter has us believing completely in the mermaid with all her very human failings and imperfections. Jon and Anna know it's only their efforts that can save the village from her anger. Calling the mermaid proves to be only too easy, but to summon the courage to tame her? Will they have sufficient strength together to pit against her magic?
