'Anne Berry is a wonderful writer... from page one, the plotting is heart-in-the-mouth stuff. What more could you ask?' Daily Mail
'Simply heartbreaking... One of the best novels I have read all year' Keith Donohue, New York Times bestselling author
Winner of Amazon's 'Rising Stars' competition
In the suffocating heat of an historic London heat wave, four young people converge in a tangled web of sexual charm and dangerous passion.
Each of their lives has been irrevocably changed by water: the cruel power of the sea, the healing pull of the river, the slow breaking of thin ice.
As four lives collide in this tale of betrayal, revenge and redemption, who will succumb this time?
Will the power of love finally bring the water children together, or tear them apart?
