Publisher's Summary

People come as well as go.
Twelve years ago, Edwin Tully came to Oxford and fell in love with a boy named Marius. He was brilliant. An artist. It was going to be forever.
Two years ago, it ended.
Now Edwin lives alone in the house they used to share. He tends to damaged books and faded memories, trying to build a future from the fragments of the past.
Then the weather turns, and the river spills into Edwin's quiet world, bringing with it Adam Dacre from the Environment Agency. An unlikely knight, this stranger with roughened hands and worn wellingtons, but he offers Edwin the hope of something he thought he would never have again.
As the two men grow closer in their struggle against the rising waters, Edwin learns he can't protect himself from everything - and sometimes he doesn't need to try.

A lovely story about believing in one's ability to love again.

Fantastic! Waiting for the Flood is one of my favorite novellas and I am so pleased with what the audiobook brought to the whole experience. Alexander Doddy did a lovely job bringing this wonderful story to life and I know that this will become one of those books I listen to quite a few times.

A book made for audio

This is an amazing, quiet, gentle story that comes alive in audio in a wholly satisfying way. I will listen to this over and over. Beautiful words presented perfectly by a lovely narrator from who I hope to hear a lot more.
