Waterstones Says

Watermarks is a vivid and heart-breaking story of not belonging. Spanning from the 1960s to the present day, and from the UK to Eastern Europe, Janiurek’s powerful memoir explores the  tragedy of growing up in a family that did not feel like her own, and  finding comfort, strength and joy somewhere she has always felt at home: in nature.

Lenka Janiurek's story really begins after the death of her mother when she was a small child, and speaks of the men who came to define her life; she is the daughter of a Polish immigrant father, the sister of five brothers, the wife of one husband, the lover of several men, and the mother of two more. Her memoir speaks of identity and trying to find your place in a country that isn't your own, within a family that doesn't feel like your own. This remarkable book traces Lenka's journey from the UK to Eastern Europe, from the 1960s to the present day. However, across the years, she remains haunted by the rage, addiction and despair of the men she is closest to. Alongside these challenges, she develops a powerful connection with the natural world, particularly water, which provides her with strength and joy.
