Publisher's Summary

Heartbreak and transformation in the beauty of a Ukrainian village.

For seven-year old Angela, happiness is exploring the lush countryside around her home in western Ukraine. Her wild imagination takes her into birds and flowers, and into the waters of the river.

All that changes when, one morning, she sees her mother crying. As she tries to find out why, she is drawn on an extraordinary journey into the secrets of her family, and her mother's fateful choices.

Can Angela lead her mother back to happiness before her innocence is destroyed by the shadows of a dark past?

Beautiful, poetic and richly sensory, this is a tale that will haunt and lift its listeners.

    "Beautiful Story"

    Hauntingly beautiful, wonderfully written and thought-provoking - these are my thoughts after finishing this story. I loved the strong connection between Angela, her mother and her grandmother and how one generation can give strength to another. The writing had an ethereal quality and I was lost in the imagery and culture of the Ukraine. I just loved this heart-warming story even though it left me a bit drained emotionally after finishing it. This was something to be experienced, not merely listened to and I was grateful for it. Helen Taylor as narrator did a wonderful job conveying the emotions of the story and her voice was just lovely. If you're looking for a truly rewarding listen, I would highly recommend The Woman Behind The Waterfall.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is my honest opinion.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    This book was well written and narrated but the story could not keep my interest. But I will try another Leonora Meriel book. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy by the author, narrator or publisher
