The Wishing Shelf Award: 'A totally engrossing, powerfully written family drama. A finalist and highly recommended.' Bookmuse Magazine: 'You'll enjoy this if you like nosing into other people's lives, gossip and descriptions of the Welsh countryside. Avoid if you don't like, secrets, family difficulties, or you are going through a divorce. Ideal accompaniments: Wine and plenty of it, a big bubble bath, a cigarette if you are so inclined.' Romance Reviews Magazine: 'Jan Ruth ruthlessly puts her hero through the grinder and God only knows how he retains his sanity. I'm literally breathless from reading this novel in one go in order to know Jack's fate. Wild Water is a damn good read'
