Review: The Seawomen by Chloe Timms

If you thought The Handmaiden’s Tale was great but needed mermaids, then Chloe Timms has answered your call with her rebellious debut about the bonds that shackle us to rigid communities and the desire for a spell to come along and set us free. Savage winds, overzealous fishermen and ominous storms linger on every page of this enjoyably stark debut: if you like your sea stories cold, The Seawomen is a no-brainer.
