Product description


Morrall's superb imagination makes When the Floods Came hugely entertaining but the real power lies in the warmth of her writing and the charm of her characters. (Kate Saunders The Times)

Astute and vigorously imagined . . . frequently wise and deeply humane . . . After her Booker-shortlisted debut, and two historical novels, Morrall's accomplished move into speculative fiction marks her out as one of our most dependable writers. (Jude Cook Spectator)

Superbly imagined . . . A wonderful book by a terrific writer (Harry Ritchie Daily Mail)

Morrall envisions an all too believable dystopian future in a novel that charms and appals in equal measure. (Myles McWeeney Irish Independent)

The measured pace of the story is mesmeric; the wilfulness of adolescence excruciatingly well drawn (Gwyneth Jones Guardian)

Book Description

A taut, gripping novel set in the future, when the lives of a family existing on the margins of a dramatically changed society are upset by a mysterious stranger.
