Shes an unmarried folklorist obsessed with mermaids. He lives for the present. She lives in the past. Both are leery of commitment. Neither has ever known lasting love. But when Tom Avery and Fay McLeod meet, its love--or at least lust--at first sight. And then fate starts to throw them curveballs.Shifting between Tom and Fays stories--from their complicated histories through their present-day angst--The Republic of Love features delightful secondary characters in the lovers friends and families, including Fays seemingly happily married parents and her beloved godmother, Onion. As Tom and Fay forge bravely ahead into a romantic minefield, they make startling discoveries about each other and themselves. With her trademark wit and irony, and a deep compassion for her hero and heroine, Carol Shields gives us a celebration of love in all its guises.
