Taking the Waters

Four very different people, in four different centuries, come to a thermal spring high in the Swiss Alps.
They may not find the healing they or their companions seek, but all will find their lives changed dramatically and forever.
This novel tells their stories and also something of the legends or travesties that future ages will make of them.

Real Time Reviews
This is a remarkable fiction work that brings back all my satisfying memories of reading the engrossing Frances Oliver from years past — a poignant, idiosyncratic, yet traditional, novel, comprising four separate but interconnected stories centred on a Swiss spa, stories taking place over centuries, involving a compelling pattern of characters, with tantalising ghostly auras as well as rounded real personalities –

“I loved this book for many reasons: the fascination of the Swiss setting, the delineation of the social mores of each period, the subtle way in which the time shifts were accomplished, the descriptions of the natural world, the characters and their stories. I could not bear to put Taking the Waters ” down
