Cassandra Brooks is a single mother-of-two, schoolteacher and water diviner. Deep in the woods as she dowses the land for a property developer, she is confronted by the body of a young girl, swinging from a tree, hanged. When she returns with the authorities, the body has vanished. Already regarded as an eccentric, her story is disbelieved- until a girl turns up in the woods, alive, mute and identical to the girl in Cassandra's vision. In the days that follow, Cassandra's visions become darker and more frequent as they begin to take on a tangible form. Forced to confront a past she has tried to forget, Cassandra finds herself locked in a game of cat-and-mouse with a real life killer who has haunted her for longer than she can remember. At once an ingeniously plotted mystery and a magical love story, The Diviner's Tale will pull you helplessly down into Cassandra's luminous world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This sublime new novel detonates the very notion of genre. And it works because it is riveting, insightful, sentence by sentence charged with feeling, as it bears us helpless with it on its downward journey to illumination -- Peter Straub, winner of Bram Stoker Award
Beautifully written and tautly paced... a tale whose subtle and mysterious confluences are as elusive as water underground -- Thomas H. Cook, winner of the Edgar Allen Poe Award
Superb. The only thing I did for two straight days was read this book-it really is that riveting... somehow alchemically able to combine suspense, wonder, and romance all in one seamless story that kept you guessing -- Jonathan Carroll, winner of World Fantasy Award
Chilling and impossible to put down. Morrow is at the top of his form: bold, original, and mesmerizing. Truly a stunning achievement -- Valerie Martin, winner of the Orange Prize
Bradford Morrow is a force of nature... The Diviner's Tale will not only delight, it will endure -- Robert Olen Butler, winner of Pulitzer Prize in Fiction
A chilling, genre-busting tale... just when you think it can't get any darker, Morrow reveals his trump card. Startling. * Daily Mirror *

“Good fiction, hard to categorise”

This is not a love story, unless you count Cassandra's love for her father and sons. Yes, there is some love interest for her but that's not the main story at all. I got half way through this book and did... More
