“[A] wonderful novel.... Waters is almost Dickensian in her wealth of description and depth of character.” (Chicago Tribune)
Moving back through the 1940s, through air raids, blacked-out streets, illicit partying, and sexual adventure, to end with its beginning in 1941, The Night Watch tells the story of four Londoners - three women and a young man with a past - whose lives, and those of their friends and lovers, connect in tragedy, stunning surprise, and exquisite turns, only to change irreversibly in the shadow of a grand historical event.
“Flawless.... A sophisticated beautifully written novel.” (The Washington Post)
“Captivating.” (The New York Times)
“Masterful.” (The Seattle Times)
