People come as well as go.
Twelve years ago, Edwin Tully came to Oxford and fell in love with a boy named Marius. He was brilliant. An artist. It was going to be forever.
Two years ago, it ended.
Now Edwin lives alone in the house they used to share. He tends to damaged books and faded memories, trying to build a future from the fragments of the past.
Then the weather turns, and the river spills into Edwin's quiet world, bringing with it Adam Dacre from the Environment Agency. An unlikely knight, this stranger with roughened hands and worn wellingtons, but he offers Edwin the hope of something he thought he would never have again.
As the two men grow closer in their struggle against the rising waters, Edwin learns he can't protect himself from everything - and sometimes he doesn't need to try.

Nice love story
This is a nice love story. Grief and new love and fear and letting go of the old. Loved the play with words. (I'll buy the ebook and re-read to enjoy this more than in audiobook format).
Unfortunately the narrator was not so good - often I could not differentiate who said what, because there was often no difference between the voices. When I cannot differenciate between the lines of 30y old Edwin and 80y old Mrs B, it is not a good performance. Adams distinctive accent also was not distinctive 90% of the time. Pity.
