Product description


"An absorbing tale of family secrets from the author of Sarah's Key." - People magazine

"I was mesmerized by Tatiana de Rosnay's new novel across the ocean and back--don't bring this book on a plane with you if you want to sleep! The Rain Watcher has something for everyone: an all-too-fathomable disaster story of the Seine swamping Paris; a family story about confronting lifelong secrets; a cautionary tale and love letter to our natural world, all told with de Rosnay's superlative sophistication and elegance. Hypnotic, passionate, ominous and tender--The Rain Watcher is unforgettable." --Jenna Blum, New York Times and internationally bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family

"The Rain Watcher is a poignant and moving story of a family in crisis. As flood waters rise in Paris, the men and women of the Malegarde clan struggle not to drown under the weight of their own secrets. Through her tender rendering of her characters, Tatiana de Rosnay demonstrates that--in spite of our burdens and our brokenness--redemption and healing are within our grasp." --Erika Robuck, national bestselling author of Hemingway's Girl

"A ceaseless rain, a brother, a sister, a birthday, a tree--seemingly ordinary things. But Tatiana de Rosnay's expert storytelling proves that within life's ordinary is the power for extraordinary change. A bonfire begins with a spark. A flood with a single drop. In similar fashion, The Rain Watcher will leave you spellbound, transformed, and swept away." --Sarah McCoy, New York Times and international bestselling author of The Mapmaker's Children

"Triumphant...de Rosnay stokes the Malegardes' histories with raw and powerful reminisces and gorgeous descriptions. This is an emotional tour de force and a thoughtful, deliberate examination of personal tragedy and the possibility of redemption." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for Tatiana de Rosnay:

"A lush, beautifully rendered saga layered with secrets [and] scandal.... [A] brilliant pager-turner."--BookPage on The Other Story

"Quietly elegant....Mesmerizing." --People on The House I Loved

"Seductive, suspenseful, [a] trés formidable keeper."--Publishers Weekly on A Secret Kept

"Masterly and compelling, it is not something that readers will quickly forget. Highly recommended."--Library Journal (starred review) on -Sarah's Key
