Deeply moving and compelling, The Rain Before it Falls is the story of three generations of one family riven by tragedy. When Rosamond, a reluctant bearer of family secrets, dies suddenly, a mystery is left for her niece Gill to unravel. Some photograph albums and tapes point towards a blind girl named Imogen whom no one has seen in twenty years. The search for Imogen and the truth of her inheritance becomes a shocking story of mothers and daughters and of how sadness, like a musical refrain, may haunt us down the years.
'Spectacular, heartbreaking, beautifully written. Rosamond's story is one of the most extraordinary and compelling you will ever read. Impossible to put down, I loved every moment of it.' Sunday Express
'A sad, often very moving story of mothers and daughters.' Guardian
'Entirely compelling . . . the plot will keep you rapt . . . reminiscent of Ian McEwan at his most effective.' New Statesman
