Product description

Review

"Castle of Water is a unique, inventive exploration of love, loss, and survival. The novel's two characters, lost and alone on a Polynesian island, must rely on each other when the world has forgotten all about them. Castle of Water is a compelling portrait of what it means to be rescued--both literally and figuratively--by hope, ingenuity, and love." --Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale

Far more complex than any given deserted island tale, Dane Huckelbridge has written a moving, harrowing, and downright literary novel in which even the inevitable comes as a surprise. Castle of Water will lift spirits and break hearts. I did not want this story to end. --Michelle Gable, New York Times bestselling author of A Paris Apartment

Brilliant, clever, riveting--pick your adjective, they all apply. But do pick up Castle of Water, just be careful when you pick it up. For Huckelbridge has spun a yarn that is sure to cost you sleep while you race to the remarkable end. It's that good. --Thomas Christopher Greene, bestselling author of The Headmaster's Wife

About the Author

DANE HUCKELBRIDGE was born and raised in the American Midwest. He holds a degree from Princeton University, and his works of fiction and essays have appeared in a variety of journals, including Tin House, Time Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Republic. Castle of Water is his first novel. Dane currently resides in Paris, France.
