Full of whimsy and gentle ironic humour, Noah's Wife is a wise and poignant novel about a community battered by a relentless downpour from the heavens, a grey and wet little town teeming with eccentric characters who have learned to endure the extraordinary circumstances of the rain with astonishing human fortitude and wilfulness. Drawing upon the motifs of the biblical flood story to explore the true meaning of community, it asks whether hope can exist even where faith has been lost.
