LET ME BE LIKE WATER by S.K. Perry & Giveaway


I’m always thrilled to receive a book that has been published by Melville House. Melville is the little publisher who produces really extraordinary novels that readers soak up in one quick sit down.

LET ME BE LIKE WATER by S.K. Perry is a beautifully poetic debut about love, loss, friendship, and ultimately, starting over.

Twenty-something Holly has moved to Brighton to escape. But now that she’s here, sitting on a bench, listening to the sea sway, how is she supposed to fill the void her boyfriend left when he died? She had thought she’d want to be on her own, but when she meets Frank, a retired magician who has experienced his own loss, the tide begins to shift. A moving and powerful debut, Let Me Be Like Water is a book about the extraordinariness hiding in everyday life; of lost and news connections; of loneliness and friendship.

By the end of the novel you’ll be in awe of Holly’s courage and feel as if Holly is a really good friend.

  2. Yes. I was born and continued to live within one county, always close to family and friends, not to mention the beach. At 61 I had to start over in Ohio and I have never made a close friend although through my health issues that happened a year after moving here, I have made casual friendships with several of my healthcare workers. I spend a lot of time missing “me” as I am no longer that person.

  3. I started over after several major and serious medical problems that made me realize my life as it was is no longer. I face life with more strength and adaptability.


  4. Queen of picking up and starting over. After 3 divorces and 4 marriages. Just put one foot in front of the other.


  5. I started over after I divorced my abusive husband. I’ve been remarried for the last 18 years. I’m thankful I removed my son at a young age from that terrible environment. His second wife stayed and let him physically abuse her and her children.


  6. I had to once when my stepdad didn’t like my choice in school and what I was doing with my life. So I had to leave that all behind and start over. It wasn’t easy! I finished college while working a bunch of dead end jobs. I wish things had worked out but I had to continue with school because I felt that was best.


  7. Recently I had to star over in another country(came to US) and it is quite challenging: new culture and beliefs to begin, new relationships… so far it’s getting fine =)

  8. My husband and I started over when we moved away from our “home city” to a new place, away from everyone we knew. It turned out to be one of the best things for our family and we have now lived here happily for 11 years! Thanks for the opportunity! ❤

  9. I worked for 12 years before i had my children. I was a domestic engineer for 13 years before I went back to work part time and eventually full time. It took a little adjusting for all of us with new schedules for everyone.


  10. I have never had to start over but have watched several friends have to. If I ever have to, I will look to those brave, determined women for advice.


  11. I have had to start over several times. It is very difficult but well worth it when you finally figure out what you were looking for. Thank you for the chance.


  12. I have started over when I left my relationship of 10 years… it was a hard choice and for years I wondered if I had done the right thing …
