The UK’s top book bloggers respond to Tatiana de Rosnay’s powerful story of family secrets, The Rain Watcher…

This March Tatiana de Rosnay’s blog tour took her to some of the UK’s most highly-regarded book blogs, to launch her new novel, The Rain Watcher.

The Rain Watcher is set in Paris, but a very different city to the one we like to imagine. The city is flooding, the Seine bursts its banks, and Paris is brought to its knees. At the same time a family reunion is going badly awry, and family secrets are rising to the surface…

Here’s what some of the bloggers wrote. If you have read the book do read the reviews – all very different and thoughtful perspectives. If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?
