Watershed is the story of two women in middle life, our inseparable connection with the natural world, a longing for freedom, and autism. It's a black comedy of failed communication and emotional manipulation, well seasoned with compassion and hope.

Synopsis

Watershed by Maggie Makepeace

Jonathan arrives in the Somerset Levels and shuts himself away in a lonely cottage to write about his obsession – water. He poses an irresistible challenge for Pamela, a forceful pillar of the community. But why is Jonathan so resistant to her blandishments - and so rude?

Only Vinny, Pamelaâs long-suffering companion, has the desire and the sensitivity to get to the bottom of Jonathanâs strange behaviour. But she herself is trapped by emotional blackmail. Will Jonathan prove to be her saviour, as much as she is his? Vinny is forced to make a difficult decision, and comes to her own personal watershed.

Storms, fire and floods suddenly raise the stakes for everyone. As the waters rise, emotions are also set to burst their bounds.

About the Author

Maggie Makepeace came to writing late in life, having begun her career as a zoologist. She had a number of jobs in scientific research and Wildlife Trusts, the most rewarding of which was a 3-year contract on a Scottish estuary studying the social behaviour of shelducks.

For a brief time in the 70s she was a television presenter for Yorkshire TV and London Weekend, and gradually became more interested in the psychology of human behaviour, especially communication – or the lack of it – and in the way that some people attempt to control the lives of others.

When in the 80s she moved back to the Westcountry, she began to write in earnest. Her first novel was published by Random House when she was 50, followed by 3 others.
