A beautifully poignant and poetic debut about love, loss, friendship, and ultimately, starting over.
Twenty-something Holly has moved to Brighton to escape. But now she’s here, sitting on a bench, listening to the sea sway… How is she supposed to fill the void her boyfriend left when he died, leaving her behind?
She had thought she’d want to be on her own, but when she meets Frank, a retired magician who has experienced his own loss, the tide begins to shift. A moving and powerful debut, Let Me Be Like Water is a book about the humdrum and extraordinariness of everyday life; of lost and new connections; of loneliness and friendship
Let Me Be Like Water by S.K. Perry is a book that will get ahold of your emotions. With grief, loss, love this book is beautifully written and has a important message of hope through. Friends are the family members we choose, but sometimes it can be difficult to leg them go. This book can be a very emotional read, especially if you have recently experienced loss or are dealing with grief. The way this book is very different as a fiction book, but enjoyable. Le Me Be Like Water is written with poetic symmetry to a narrative that is very therapeutic. This book is a different read then I have read before. I will warn you that this isn't a book I would recommend for you youth or children because of the content in it.
