Review

"Swimming at Night" reaches deep, exploring sibling relationships, love, friendship, identity, and the willingness to put it all on the line in order to learn the truth. I loved my own journey with these two sisters and the haunting landscape of their travels! --Ellen Sussman, author of French Lessons and The Paradise Guest House"

I loved my own journey with these two sisters and the haunting landscape of their travels!"--Ellen Sussman, author of French Lessons and The Paradise Guest House

A tender and intricate meditation on sisterhood and family, Swimming at Night is an accomplished debut. With a deft hand, Lucy Clarke weaves a deep and compelling story that is as much about what binds us together as it is about what tears us apart. Perfectly capturing the impossibly complicated love of siblings, this is a rich and moving story that lingers long after the book is closed. --Lisa Unger, author of Heartbroken and Beautiful Lies"

I really enjoyed Lucy Clarkes first book, The Sea Sisters, that I wondered if her new book would be as good. I need not have worried. It was every bit as good. Like her first book I couldn't put this one down. The character of Eva was so real I felt for her losses. I could not predict what was going to happen next, every chapter surprised me. I would thoroughly recommend this book.

It took me ages to get into this but I was eventually hooked on the mystery between the two brothers. I wasn’t really convinced that people who don’t appear to be wealthy can keep taking off to the other side of the world on a whim. It seemed a bit convenient. I wouldn’t call it a thriller as it was quite gentle and meandering. But I did enjoy it.

I enjoyed this, though it really isn't a thriller, despite many reviews to the contrary. A couple of times it seemed like it was going there, but a couple of things being moved/going missing in a beach shack and the feeling of a shadow outside do not, for me, constitute a thriller! This is not my usual genre and I've not read The Sea Sisters, so didn't know what to expect. It was an easy read - definitely a beach book - and I guessed the two main 'twists' about the bush fire and the thing that happens nearer the end quite early on - for me they were screamingly obvious, but I am a crime fiction reader, so maybe not as obvious to some!

Quite often I'd read 50 or more pages and realise that nothing had really happened - lots and lots of long conversations and soul searching, which was quite nicely done if you like that sort of thing. Some characters were a little stereotypical - in particular, the best friend Callie and the drunken father in law, Dirk. However, they were still likeable enough. Just.

The descriptions of places were nicely done. The character descriptions were more mixed for me. The main character, Eva, has short hair and not much else! The two brothers were well depicted - similar enough for Eva to see the family resemblance in movement and nuances (which was nicely done) but with different, soul-searching eyes. Nice.

So a good enough summer read and definitely enjoyable enough for me to search out The Sea Sisters next time I want a break from crime.

Format: Paperback
The setting for the book is the fictional island of Wattleboon and is modelled on Bruny Island, which lies off the south eastern coast of Tasmania. It has ruggedness, a sparse population and water-based activities which all make for a superb backdrop to the story.

Eva has only recently married Jackson and whilst spending time on the coast in the UK at her Mother’s house, Jackson drowns (not a spoiler as this happens early on in the book), and Eva somehow has to pick up the pieces of her life. As part of the mourning process, she feels it would be helpful to go halfway around the world to try and connect with Jackson’s estranged family in Australia. There is his Father, Dirk, to seek out but also his brother Saul, who is the real draw for her – why did he and Jackson fall out, what is the inherent mystery underpinning their relationship?

The deeper she delves, the more she becomes unsettled by what she finds, all is not as it seems. She lives in a small hut that Saul has arranged for her, she learns to freedive with Saul’s encouragement, and with each day she builds up a picture of the the man she married. How much did she really know about him?

It is a slow, languorous story that unfolds with each new revelation (there are many), and hovering in the background, trying to keep Eva on a reasonably straight and narrow path, is her friend Callie, who has accompanied her – Callie’s ultimate destination being Melbourne where she has a short term job.

The story is a meander through the fragile structure of one small family, and a gentle exploration of life on an Australian island. It is a satisfying read, the author is superb at conveying setting, and bringing characters together in an interesting and unique way.
