We moved back to our cottage here in Senara in January. That was one good thing that came out of the flood; our rented house was an uninhabitable wreck. And Mum didn’t want to live in St. Pirans anymore.
Chapter One. IT’S APRIL, AND THE SUN IS warm. We moved back to our cottage here in Senara in January. She thought we’d be safer back in Senara, high up on the cliff. If you’ve never been in a flood, you can’t imagine what St. Pirans looked like afterward. The streets were full of mud, sand, rocks, and every kind of rubbish.

Helen Dunmore obituary. Her Ingo series was magical: she made mermaids and mermen seem more real, less provisional, than humans. Poet and novelist with a flair for reinvention and making history human. The writer Helen Dunmore, who has died aged 64 of cancer, seldom made herself her subject. The author of 12 novels, three books of short stories, numerous books for young adults and children and 11 collections of poetry, she was remarkable in that, although she made an impression from the start, her career evolved in unexpected ways. Dunmore’s readers will not be surprised to learn she loved gardening – she knew her wild flowers.

The Deep is a children's novel by English writer Helen Dunmore, published in 2007 and the third of the Ingo tetralogy (following Ingo and The Tide Knot and to be followed by The Crossing of Ingo). A devastating flood has torn through the worlds of Air and Ingo, and now, deep in the ocean, a monster is stirring. Mer legend says that only those with dual blood-half Mer, half human-can overcome the Kraken that stirs in The Deep.
In the heat of Rome's long summer, the poet Catullus and his older married lover, Clodia Metelli, meet in secret.

Sapphire lives in two worlds. On land she walks the rocky shores of the Cornwall coast—but under the sea she can swim like a seal by the side of her Mer friend Faro.
Now both of Sapphy's worlds are threatened. In the profound depths of the ocean, where the Mer cannot go, a monster called the Kraken is stirring. He has the power to sweep Ingo away and shake the land from its foundation.
Because of her mixed blood, Sapphire can enter the Deep. With a great whale as her guide, she will journey to a place so far from the sun, no light can find it—and confront an evil that's even darker.
