Book Spotlight & Giveaway: The Rain Watcher by Tatiana de Rosnay

Yesterday, Tatiana de Rosnay's latest novel, The Rain Watcher, came out, and because I ended up with an extra copy, I'm going to give that copy away - and it's a finished copy! I will be reading this book soon and am really excited about it.  You can also see what others have to say and then be sure to enter the giveaway below!!!

Title: The Rain Watcher
Author: Tatiana de Rosnay
Published: October 2018, St. Martin's Press
Format: Hardcover, 240 pages

The first new novel in four years from the beloved superstar author of Sarah's Key, a heartbreaking and uplifting story of family secrets and devastating disaster, in the tradition of THE NEST. 

The Rain Watcher is a powerful family drama set in Paris as the Malegarde family gathers to celebrate the father's 70th birthday. Their hidden fears and secrets are slowly unraveled as the City of Light undergoes a stunning natural disaster. Seen through the eyes of charismatic photographer Linden Malegarde, the youngest son, all members of the family will have to fight to keep their unity against tragic circumstances.

In this profound and intense novel of love and redemption, De Rosnay demonstrates all of her writer's skills both as an incredible storyteller but also as a soul seeker.


“I was mesmerized by Tatiana de Rosnay’s new novel across the ocean and back―don’t bring this book on a plane with you if you want to sleep! The Rain Watcher has something for everyone: an all-too-fathomable disaster story of the Seine swamping Paris; a family story about confronting lifelong secrets; a cautionary tale and love letter to our natural world, all told with de Rosnay’s superlative sophistication and elegance. Hypnotic, passionate, ominous and tender―The Rain Watcher is unforgettable.” ―Jenna Blum, New York Times and internationally bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family 

“The Rain Watcher is a poignant and moving story of a family in crisis. As flood waters rise in Paris, the men and women of the Malegarde clan struggle not to drown under the weight of their own secrets. Through her tender rendering of her characters, Tatiana de Rosnay demonstrates that―in spite of our burdens and our brokenness―redemption and healing are within our grasp.” ―Erika Robuck, national bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl

 “A ceaseless rain, a brother, a sister, a birthday, a tree―seemingly ordinary things. But Tatiana de Rosnay’s expert storytelling proves that within life’s ordinary is the power for extraordinary change. A bonfire begins with a spark. A flood with a single drop. In similar fashion, The Rain Watcher will leave you spellbound, transformed, and swept away.” Sarah McCoy, New York Times and international bestselling author of The Mapmaker’s Children 

“Triumphant…de Rosnay stokes the Malegardes’ histories with raw and powerful reminisces and gorgeous descriptions. This is an emotional tour de force and a thoughtful, deliberate examination of personal tragedy and the possibility of redemption.” ―Publishers Weekly
“The evocation of Paris is worthy of Modiano, and de Rosnay's projection of the city's worst deluge since 1910 is not only horrifying, but timely after the actual Seine floods of January 2018.” ―Kirkus Reviews
