`Evans interweaves the strands of her three-generation narrative with an exhilarating sense of place and period' Daily Telegraph Read the dazzling family mystery from the Women's Prize-shortlisted author of Ordinary People As a child Lucas thought that all children who'd lost their parents lived on water. Now a restless young man still living with his sister Denise on their West London narrowboat, he determines to find out more about the unexplained disappearance of his father, the charismatic Jamaican dancer, Antoney Matheus. Thus unfolds a journey from fifties Kingston to sixties Notting Hill and the host of unforgettable characters who peopled Antoney's theatrical world, most importantly Carla, Lucas's mother. The result is a haunting family saga of absence and inheritance, the battle between love and creativity, and what drives a young man to take flight... `Sparkles with mood, music and the sway of life' Marie Claire
