The Rain Watcher

The Rain Watcher

The Rain Watcher by Tatiana de Rosnay


My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A family of four arrive on holiday in Paris and is caught up in rainy weather that produces the Seine River to overflow its banks.
Paris' citizens are captives in a flood.
What is more frustrating and annoying (IMO) is the father suffers a stroke and the mother catches pneumonia. Ugh. really? Tilia the daughter has big hangups with hospitals for having been the sole survivor of a car accident. She spent six months in hospital having a hip replacement and she can't step foot in a hospital to be with her dad.
Linden appears to be the glue that will hold this family together except he has his worries about coming out to his father that he is gay.
Paul Malegarde and his family have a lot of secrets, they probably should've gotten therapy for, jeesh. Was his babysitter raped and murdered while he was all safely tucked up in a tree?
Paris could use a few good trees in case of MONSTER floods.
I found the story's raison d'ĂȘtre quite puzzling.
