Where the Water Flows by Romola Farr

When I saw this book come up for tour with Rachel’s Random Resources I was intrigued by the cover. The river peeking through the trees is beautiful.

About the Book:

It had been a long, hot summer followed by a very wet autumn. The River Hawk, lying to the north of a former little mill town, was in full flood but nobody imagined the catastrophe that lay ahead.
Not the elderly couple who created a beautiful memorial garden that would become a lake.
Not the opera singer who found a friend who would risk all to save her life.
Not the owner of Wax Polish who would battle to rescue her first love.
Not the new parents who would be overwhelmed and torn apart.
And certainly not two drama students whose lives would change forever.


Romola Farr is a new author to me. The book is set in Hawksmead in the UK, the same setting for Farr’s earlier books. The town has some very interesting characters and you can tell there is a history within the town. I felt comfortable as a standalone books but think I would have understood some things in the book more if I’d read the other books. Several stories within the story keeps the book interesting. The author frequently switches between stories so the reader does not have a wait long to continue a smaller story.

About the Author:

Romola Farr first trod the boards on the West End stage aged sixteen and continued to work for the next eighteen years in theatre, TV and film - and as a photographic model. A trip to Hollywood led to the sale of her first screenplay and a successful change of direction as a screenwriter and playwright. Bridge To Eternity was her debut novel, and Breaking through the Shadows and Where the Water Flows are standalone sequels. All three novels are set in the fictional town of Hawksmead.

Romola Farr is a nom de plume.
