"I wonder this: If you take a woman and push her to the edge, how will she behave?" The question is posed by Jean, a photographer, who arrives on Smuttynose Island, off the coast of New Hampshire, to research a century-old crime. As she immerses herself in the details of the case--an outburst of passion that resulted in the deaths of two women--Jean herself enters precarious emotional territory. The suspicion that her husband is having an affair burgeons into jealousy and distrust, and ultimately propels Jean to the verge of actions she had not known herself capable of--actions with horrific consequences. Everywhere hailed for its beauty and power, The Weight of Water takes us on an unforgettable journey through the furthest extremes of emotion.

Review:

Compelling and beautifully written . . . the strength of the book lies in the exquisite handling of the metaphor of the sea - constant but shifting, all surface but all depth: and in particular the dangerous emotional currents that in both stories collide forcibly to make disaster inevitable (Lynne Truss, THE TIMES)

Enthralling...an object lesson in how to unravel a complicated plot (Anita Brookner)

Rich, sensual prose...subtle and disturbing (Rosellen Brown)

Shortlisted for the Orange Prize, this is a beautifully crafted novel that explores the way in which we tell stories to try and relieve the weight of the past. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Book Description:

Mesmeric evocation of a long-dead, tragic tale, which illuminates the emotions of its reader in the present day.
'The works of Anita Shreve are some of my favourite audio discoveries of the year' Disability Times
