Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today I am involved in the book tour for Where the Water Flows by Romola Farr. Romola Farr first trod the boards on the West End stage aged sixteen and continued to work for the next eighteen years in theatre, TV and film - and as a photographic model. A trip to Hollywood led to the sale of her first screenplay and a successful change of direction as a screenwriter and playwright. Bridge To Eternity was her debut novel, and Breaking through the Shadows and Where the Water Flows are standalone sequels. All three novels are set in the fictional town of Hawksmead.

Romola Farr is a nom de plume.

About the book:
It had been a long, hot summer followed by a very wet autumn. The River Hawk, lying to the north of a former little mill town, was in full flood but nobody imagined the catastrophe that lay ahead. Not the elderly couple who created a beautiful memorial garden that would become a lake. Not the opera singer who found a friend who would risk all to save her life.Not the owner of Wax Polish who would battle to rescue her first love.Not the new parents who would be overwhelmed and torn apart.And certainly not two drama students whose lives would change forever.


Where the Water Flows is the third book in the Hawksmead series. Although if like me you haven't read the other 2 books it works well as a standalone novel. Where the Water Flows is a compelling read told in the times of Covid and mentions how people coped with vaccines, face masks and social distancing. The natural disaster starts off the novel, however before getting into the action the story goes back in time a few weeks, in order to see just what led up to that moment. There is a great dynamic mix of characters in this novel and I really enjoyed how the story unfolded.
