"Vinny sat on the bank close to the water, caught up once again in the spirit of the place. When she'd been here in late May the yellow flags were blooming at the margins of the ditches. Today, there were little electric blue damselflies zipping about just above the water, like fairies in Lycra. I'm 45, she thought, the age when people begin to ask, "Is this all there is?"" This is a black comedy of failed communication and emotional manipulation, deeply seasoned with compassion and hope. Jonathan arrives in the Somerset Levels and shuts himself away in a lonely cottage to write about his obsession - water. He poses an irresistible challenge for Pamela, a forceful pillar of the community. But why does she find him so resistant to her blandishments - and so rude? Only Pamela's long-suffering companion Vinny has the desire and the sensitivity to get to the bottom of Jonathan's strange behaviour. But she herself is trapped by emotional blackmail. Will Jonathan prove to be her saviour, as much as she is his? Vinny is forced to make a difficult decision, and comes to her own personal watershed. Storms, fire and floods suddenly raise the stakes for everyone. As the waters rise, emotions are also set to burst their bounds.

"'Tension, intrigue and elemental forces... a powerful combination that makes an absorbing narrative.' Jane Sewell"About the Author:
Maggie Makepeace started her career as a zoologist interested in animal behaviour. Through a brief spell in the 70s as a television presenter for Yorkshire TV and London Weekend she developed this interest turning to the psychology of human behaviour, specifically communication - or the lack of it - and the way that some people attempt to control the lives of others. In the 80s she returned to the west country and started to write in earnest. Her first novel was published by Random House when she was fifty, followed by three others. Watershed her fifth novel is inspired by the view of the Somerset Levels from her house, and the influence and beauty of water on the landscape.
