Water Witches - Chris Bohjalian

Why is this prolific US author not better known in the UK?
Another unusual book. Dowsers meet corporation meet lawyers.
The main character is a male lawyer working for a ski corporation and married to a dowser.
With a drought in the area and the corporation wishing to divert water from the local river to produce snow he is in the unenviable position of defending himself at home and at work.
The book revolves around the tug of love between earning the money and believing in his family.
But where does his heart lie?
Great elements of eco arguments and social arguments make up another good read from Bohjalian.

Publisher - Touchstone
