David Cross can't tell Ed or Lucy that he is in some ways happier now that their mother is dead; to his own mind he is more himself than he has been for nearly 40 years. When Nancy was alive, he had secrets that he kept from her. Now that she is dead, he has a secret that he must keep from his children: he is not unhappy.

To Heaven by Water is a touching and hilarious portrait of the Cross family trying to come to terms with the loss of their mother.

    " I usually really enjoy Justin Cartwright's book but I was a little disappointed with this. It is entertaining as the author has a great eye for detail and social commentary, but I wasn't really engaged with the characters, and some of the behaviour was unbelievable. "

    " decent prose, often silly characters, unsatisfactory ending "

    " Just okay - I found it a little cumbersome at times. "

    " An OK read, not fab.. probably wouldn't suggest it to anyone! "

    " I enjoyed this and was gripped from the start. Good characters and fun plot kept me going and I liked the level of detail - reminiscent of Anne Tyler's style - that you get with Cartwright. Basically that's why I read fiction. "

    " Good story with family issues and some thought provoking pieces. This author understands how people tick. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hichantel | 7/4/2012

    " Total navel-gazing book. You keep waiting for it to get to the point or the plot, but it never does. I only read it because I was on a long, international flight with nothing else to read or watch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 6/21/2012

    " I loved the imagery of the author, as he tells a tale about a recent widower's journey of love and loss with his grown family and brother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy J Jeynes | 6/19/2012

    " Seems to me that Justin Cartwright has the gift of capturing ordinary families and finding the drama of everyday life. Death too, and ageing. But this is not a morbid book. His comments on relationships can ring too close for comfort, some days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gingerconnearney | 6/7/2012

    " Just 58 pages into this book, I am touched by the insights into the complexity of navigating modern life just as I was with "The Promise of Happiness". "
