about

Told in mesmerising prose, with a charm and rhythm entirely its own, CASTLE OF WATER is more than just a classic castaway story. It is a stirring reflection on love's restorative potential, as well as a poignant reminder that home-be it a flat in Paris, a New York apartment, or a desolate atoll a world away-is where the heart is.For Sophie Ducel, her honeymoon in French Polynesia was intended as a celebration of life. The proud owner of a thriving Parisian architecture firm, co-founded with her brilliant new husband, Sophie has much to look forward to-including a visit to the island home of her favorite singer, Jacques Brel.For Barry Bleecker, the same trip was meant to mark a new beginning. Turning away from his dreary existence in Manhattan finance, Barry had set his sights on fine art, seeking creative inspiration on the other side of the world-just like his idol, Paul Gauguin.But when their small plane is downed in the middle of the South Pacific, the sole survivors of the wreck are left with one common goal: to survive. Stranded on an island the size of a city block, hundreds of miles from civilization, the two castaways must reconcile their differences and learn to draw on one another's strengths if they are to have any hope of making it home.

Editorial Reviews

'"Castle of Water" is a unique, inventive exploration of love, loss, and survival. The novel's two characters, lost and alone on a Polynesian island, must rely on each other when the world has forgotten all about them. "Castle of Water" is a compelling portrait of what it means to be rescued-both literally and figuratively-by hope, ingenuity, and love.' - Kristin Hannah, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Nightingale"'Brilliant, clever, riveting pick your adjective, they all apply. But do pick up "Castle of Water," just be careful when you pick it up. For Huckelbridge has spun a yarn that is sure to cost you sleep while you race to the remarkable end. It's that good.' - Thomas Christopher Greene, bestselling author of "The Headmaster's Wife"
