Summer, 1944, and in a seemingly tranquil midland village the lives of two small children are about to change for ever. Fifty years later the now middle-aged brother and sister set out to uncover and understand the cause of those catastrophic events, the scars of which they still bear.

John Lucas’s riveting novel is about the role of memory in how we shape and come to terms with the past. It is also about how that past can reveal itself in unexpected and sometimes disturbing ways. Waterdrops is about what is lost, what endures, about, as one of the characters says, “the terrible things that happen in war, and not only on the battlefield”. It is also about love.
