Praise for The Rain Watcher:
"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
"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
