We Are Water

by Wally Lamb
£9.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (Harper) (2014)

We Are Water by Wally Lamb From New York Times bestselling author Wally Lamb, this is a disquieting and ultimately uplifting novel about a marriage, a family, and human resilience in the face of tragedy.

As Annie Ohís wedding day approaches, she finds herself at the mercy of hopes and fears about the momentous change ahead. She has just emerged from a twenty-five year marriage to Orion Oh, which produced three children, but is about to marry a woman named Viveca, a successful art dealer, who specializes in outsider art.

Trying to reach her ex-husband, she keeps assuring everyone that he is fine. Except she has no idea where he is. But when Viveca discovers a famous painting by a mysterious local outside artist, who left this world in more than mysterious circumstances, Orion, Annie and Vivecaís new dynamic becomes fraught. And on the day of the wedding, the secrets and shocking truths that have been discovered will come to light.

Set in Lambís mythical town of Three Rivers, Connecticut, this is a riveting, epic novel about marriage and family, old hurts and past secrets, which explores the ways we find meaning in our lives.
