Water follows the trials and tribulations of a family living in extreme poverty on a remote lake-side farm in Wales, following a worldwide crisis. Food is scarce, the chickens are dying one by one, and the farm sleeps in the winter sun. Elin, the mother who turned her back on the world, is scraping a living, unable to cope with the dirt, the cold, and the poverty. Uncle Wil is rapidly ageing on the shriveled farmyard. The children, Mari and Huw, have yet to succumb to the disaster that's isolating the farm. Then, they meet Nico, a Pole seen wandering on the mountain, a rare opportunity comes their way and they find hope of rescue and a new life in a country that's destroying itself. "A family on a Welsh farm in a grim future struggle to survive in this stark, affecting novel with a vision that means to disturb."--Kirkus Reviews 10/01/14
