Synopsis: Night after night, fifteen-year-old Brandi Vine is drawn to a rocky New England beach. The very spot where her sister's lifeless body washed ashore after a night spent swimming alone. Brandi mourns beside the cold water, unaware of the haunting gray eyes watching her from beneath the waves... Brandi soon yields herself to a forbidden romance with the young man beneath the water, the only one who can unlock the mystery of her sister's final swim.
Review: ‘The Twilight Swimmer’ is a book I feel will appeal to a diverse audience. Brandi Vine is a complex and well-developed character, dealing with the loss of her sister. She’s obviously affected by how it has changed her family dynamic. Most especially, it has changed the way Brandi defines herself. ‘The Twilight Swimmer’ does include some fantastical elements, but they are handled deftly and without grandiosity, which I liked. While The Swimmer is a real being, I felt he reflected Brandi’s own state of mind, her fragility, and her longing to find herself and her home again. ‘The Twilight Swimmer’ is a poignant and moving novel with a deep emotional impact and stunning imagery. This is a story which will stick with you for a long time.
