‘Intimate, ruthless, tender: this book is like medicine for the soul.’ Nina George, author of The Little Paris Bookshop
A beautifully poignant and poetic debut about love, loss, friendship, and ultimately, starting over.
Twenty-something Holly has moved to Brighton to escape. But now that she’s here, sitting on a bench, listening to the sea sway, how is she supposed to fill the void her boyfriend left when he died?
She had thought she’d want to be on her own, but when she meets Frank, a retired magician who has experienced his own loss, the tide begins to shift. A moving and powerful debut, Let Me Be Like Water is a book about the extraordinariness hiding in everyday life; of lost and new connections; of loneliness and friendship.
“[A] moving debut… by the book’s satisfying conclusion, readers will feel they have grown alongside loving and resilient Holly.”–PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
“A beautiful and gut-wrenching exploration of a woman defining herself after a monumental loss.”–KIRKUS REVIEWS
“Raw, visceral and confident… this is an affecting debut.”–THE DAILY MAIL (UK)
