9780007532865: We Are Water

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

As Annie Oh’s 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 Viveca’s 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 Lamb’s 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.

Review:

‘Audacious…profound and moving…A soaring novel’ MIAMI HERALD

‘What makes it a romance though, and a truly compelling one, is their hope. Lamb shifts constantly from satire to horror to humour, but all his characters yearn for happiness… a highly readable book’ GUARDIAN

‘It’s a sign of a good novel when the reader slowly savors the final chapters, both eager to discover the ending and dreading saying goodbye to the characters. We Are Water is a book worth diving into’ USA TODAY

‘A moving…story that seesaws between hope and despair’ BOSTON GLOBE

‘Wholly sympathetic, deeply moving’ WASHINGTON POST

‘Clear and sweetly flowing; highly recommended’ LIBRARY JOURNAL

‘…this family saga is hard to put down’ ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

‘Through alternating perspectives this addicting novel reveals how secrets can define a person and wreak havoc on her loved ones’ REAL SIMPLE

‘Lamb excels at delivering unexpected blows to his characters, ratcheting up the suspense to the final page’ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
