Summerwater by Sarah Moss – a review

summerwater

Excellent, atmospheric novel set by a Scottish loch where unrelated families are trying to make the most of a rainy summer holiday. It’s both funny, realistic and also imbued with impending tragedy. The ending is so unexpected it takes your breath away. I enjoyed Sarah Moss’s previous novella, Ghost Wall and although completely different there are similarities in tone and setting. Highly recommended.

Summerwater will be published in August 2020.
