Legend Press are delighted to be publishing Underwater Breathing by Cassandra Parkin on May 3rd, 2018.
AND… I am delighted to say that I have added this title to my TBR. Just read the blurb and you might want to add it to your TBR as well…
On Yorkshire’s gradually-crumbling mud cliffs sits an Edwardian seaside house. In the bathroom, Jacob and Ella hide from their parents’ passionate arguments by playing the Underwater Breathing game – until the day Jacob wakes to find his mother and sister gone.
Years later, the sea’s creeping closer, his father is losing touch with reality and Jacob is trapped in his past. Then, Ella’s sudden reappearance forces him to confront his fractured childhood. As the truth about their parents emerges, it’s clear that Jacob’s time hiding beneath the water is coming to an end.
Although I’ve never read this author before the blurb was just too tempting for me to resist.
