Description

“Jonathan Coe is one of my favourite writers – his novels are always cleverly constructed but immensely readable. In this one, a family’s secrets are revealed through a set of photographs and the audio tapes left by Rosamund that describe where and when they were taken. A beautiful and moving story.” Bob

The Rain Before it Falls is the story of three generations of one family riven by tragedy. When Rosamund, a reluctant bearer of family secrets, dies suddenly, a mystery is left for her niece Gill to unravel. Some photograph albums and tapes point towards a blind girl named Imogen whom no one has seen in twenty years.

The search for Imogen and the truth of her inheritance becomes a shocking story of mothers and daughters and of how sadness, like a musical refrain, may haunt us down the years.
