I am always really excited to hear that Jules Wake is releasing a new book and this was a wonderful book to jump into.
We meet Ettie as her life in London implodes and she moves back in with her Mum & Grandad and tries to get a job at a local hotel that is just preparing to reopen. Whilst walking to the hotel she stumbles across an open water lake that she remembers from childhood and a wonderful community who love to cold water swim.
I love the back story that runs alongside this of how Ettie was taught to swim by her Grandad and how these experiences are what evoked her love of swimming and prompted her to become a qualified lifeguard when she was younger.
A wonderful story, that I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end.
For fans of The Saturday Morning Park Run! Take the plunge and discover a gorgeous new read full of friendship, love and the healing power of community!
Ettie is trying to figure out her future.
Dominic’s just trying to forget his past.
But with the help of some unlikely friends, young and old, a secret lake hidden in the grounds of a beautiful estate and a scruffy dog, a new community is formed – right when they all need each other the most.
