Even with her mother’s death days away, even as her marriage is falling apart, Euly Winger leaves home, returning to the place she grew up in order to uncover a dark secret about her parent’s divorce.

On her search for answers, Euly meets up with an old family friends–some offer help, some disaster. Euly returns home just hours before her mother dies. As they sit alone together, Euly asks her mother for the truth.

A suspenseful and inspirational read, DROWNING, a story of love and redemption.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Tales of redemption are a staple of fiction; however, under the deft hand of Susan Wingate, the story of Euly Winger in Drowning is unlike any story you have read before. While Euly navigates the secrets of her family’s past as she simultaneously confronts her failed marriage and her mother’s imminent death, a character of memorable proportions emerges, and we have a new heroine to cheer on and to embrace.


Susan Wingate’s novel DROWNING took me deep into its waters, from the first to the last page. Susan Wingate utterly succeeds in writing DROWING, as a powerful novel that is designed to show the conflicts as well as the complex inner workings of human nature.


There is a flow and depth to this book beyond all others I have read by Susan Wingate. Clearly she is growing as a writer by the hour. The book, Drowning, pulls you in and doesn’t let you go. By the first few lines I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading. A sensitive and beautiful read.


This is not an ordinary story. It is fathoms deep with joy, sorrow and secrets. The writer has knowledge of life and how it is lived. Mother, daughter, sister tangle with love and fear amid some secrets and some personal issues. The reality is the writer knows how we try not to scratch the heels of our boots in the gravel. She knows that forgiveness is often fraught with disaster and guilt. Hidden buried secrets are searched out and twisted into the light. I highly recommend this novel. Different from Wingate’s other works, this is one is born of magic, that writing that pours from the fingers giving the writer only the clips of the movie while she fills in the lines. You will love Drowning.
