All the Water in the World

‘TENDER, HEARTFELT AND HEART-BREAKING’ Francis Spufford
‘VERY MOVING, A WARM AND COMPASSIONATE NOVEL’ Diana Evans

Maddy is sixteen. She has loyal friends, a mother with whom she’s unusually close, a father she’s never met, devoted grandparents, and a crush on a boy named Jack. Maddy is also dying.

Told alternately by Maddy and her mother, Eve, All the Water in the World is a heart-breaking story of a family doing its best when faced with the worst, and a poignant testimony to the transformative power of love.

‘DEEPLY REWARDING AND WHOLLY UNFORGETTABLE’ Bret Anthony Johnston

Heartbreaking and heartwarming in equal measure. Unafraid to probe the complexities of parenthood and partnership, Raney is an author to watch

Diana Evans, author of ORDINARY PEOPLE
An exquisite tracing of the tangled lines of mother-daughter love, loss, and grief

Beautiful, raw, bold, heartfelt, heartbreaking and brave just some of the words to describe this excellent book - one to watch for 2020.
