#InternationalFiction #Feature | Where Waters Meet by Zhang Ling | @FMcMAssociates @AmazonPub

I’m featuring a couple of international fiction titles over the next couple of days and first of all is Where Waters Meet by Zhang Ling. This is one I really like the sound of and hope to read nearer publication time. It will be published by Amazon Crossing on 1st May 2023. I’ll be sharing an extract as part of the blogtour. Thanks to Katya at FMcM Associates for sending me a copy.

About the book

There was rarely a time when Phoenix Yuan-Whyller’s mother, Rain, didn’t live with her. Now at the age of eighty-three, Rain’s unexpected death ushers in a heartrending separation. 

Struggling with the loss, Phoenix comes across her mother’s suitcase—a memory box Rain had brought from home. Inside, Phoenix finds two old photographs and a decorative bottle holding a crystallized powder. Her auntie Mei tells her these missing pieces of her mother’s early life can only be explained when they meet, and so, clutching her mother’s ashes, Phoenix boards a plane for China. What at first seems like a daughter’s quest to uncover a mother’s secrets becomes a startling journey of self-discovery. 

Told across decades and continents, Zhang Ling’s exquisite novel is a tale of extraordinary courage and survival. It illuminates the resilience of humanity, the brutalities of life, the secrets we keep and those we share, and the driving forces it takes to survive.
