Apple and Rain (published in hardback 14th August 2014, priced £10.99) is the fourth book by multiple award-winning author Sarah Crossan. It explores the bond between mothers and daughters, and the power of forgiveness.
When Apple’s mother returns after eleven years of absence, Apple feels whole again. She will have an answer to her burning question – why did you go? And she will have someone who understands what it means to be a teenager – unlike Nana. But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother’s homecoming is bitter sweet, and Apple wonders who is really looking after whom. It’s only when Apple meets someone more lost than she is, that she begins to see things as they really are.
Sarah’s love of poetry, and her skill in making it accessible for readers of all ages and abilities, shone in The Weight of Water. In this new book its presence is subtle, but just as poignant. A moving, perceptive and beautifully crafted story which has the power to make you laugh and cry. Website: www.sarahcrossan.com / Twitter: [at]SarahCrossan / Facebook: Sarah Crossan
