“…Anyone who has been put through the wringer and had to confront the reality of letting go of the only person who has kept them alive for so long, will find a piece of themselves in it. A powerful portrayal of human tragedy depicting how life’s twists and turns can disfigure, so grotesquely, that which was once wholesome and pure. It tells of one man’s lone struggle to immortalise all that he once coveted in a relationship that no longer exists. If only we could embalm youthful innocence and keep it fresh and pure forever… Envy the Rain is a touching tribute not only to lost love -– but also to lost innocence. The novel describes how, ultimately, in order for a man to save his own life and sanity, he needs to learn to let go of his memories and dreams of ‘what could have been’ — and close the door.”
