“What is grief, really? It’s just a love that refuses to die…” Election fever has gripped the village of Little Bassington and the race for the Town Hall has intensified – with the fate of the Water Tower at stake. But as ghosts of the past and shadows of the future loom large, victory is reserved for those who are willing to pay its price. When journalist Adam Chapman embarks upon a deal with the devil, librarian Victoria Kendall discovers that some choices are destined to be inescapable. Meanwhile, the boundaries of love – both unconditional and unrequited – are put to the test. Feelings long buried are rising to the surface. Painful heartaches and disquieting realities look set to endure. A decades-old secret, long forgotten and left to gather dust, is discovered at Orchard House. For one resident, the aftermath of their brightest morning is about to become their darkest night… The second in Chris Vobe's five-volume epic, 'The Water Tower' is a raw and uncompromising tale of love, loyalty and allegiance, and offers a candid exploration of the way we deal with loss.
