The Water Cure

Imagine a world very close to our own: where women are not safe in their bodies, where desperate measures are required to raise a daughter. This is the story of Grace, Lia, and Sky kept apart from the world for their own good and taught the terrible things that every woman must learn about love. And it is the story of the men who come to find them - three strangers washed up by the sea, their gazes hungry and insistent, trailing desire and destruction in their wake.Hypnotic and compulsive, The Water Cure is a fever dream, a blazing vision of suffering, sisterhood, and transformation....

The Water Cure Reviews

  • Melanie  (Perpetually Reading)

    Mackintosh writes in absolutely beautiful and unflinching prose about the desolation and destruction of a family.

    The book is set in a remote, seaside home of a family of a father (King), a mother (Mother), and three sisters (Lia, Grace, and Sky). The sisters are raised in isolation and are taught by their parents to fear, hate, and avoid men. They're told that interacting with men would make them physically sick, and it is unclear throughout the story whether this is true or not in their world,

    I feel like this week is conspiring against me reads-wise.

    The pitch for THE WATER CURE was THE HANDMAID'S TALE meets THE VIRGIN SUICIDES in this dystopic feminist revenge fantasy about three sisters on an isolated island, raised to fear men and while that concept drew me in.. I think, in practice, it's exactly what failed me because in some ways it lived upto the pitch too well, whilst simultaneously not delivering in the way I expected.

    The narrative/voice for Mackintosh's story was really unexp

  • Victoria's Book Reviews

    Wow. I absolutely adored this book. I ADORED it. At times, potently political, at other times haunting, even gothic, The Water Cure is a radical exploration of female insecurity and power that follows three daughters brought up in an isolated compound away from men. But then men arrive…

    Grace, Lia and Sky are three sisters in their late teens and early twenties who, it quickly transpires, have been raised on an unidentified island by their mother and father, King. It seems the parents had decided

    Wither drought epoch, drifts into aqua,

    wrap me up, I am all watery coffin,

    Oceanic Falls, down diver,

    deadly aquatic narcotic,

    fractured body, its beauty of self –

    unrepentant to all and all of myself,

    in the air, electro-blue sighs,

    fading ballerinas, dance across the archipelagos,

    seawater seeps inside your twelve-square tomb.

    The Water Cure tells the story of three young women, they’ve grown up away from people and believe they live in a world that is filled with sickness and men are never to be trusted.

    The Water Cure tells the story of 3 sisters, Grace, Lia & Sky who live on a remote island alone with their parents. Their parents took them from the mainland because the world has become toxic to women and men are dangerous to them. They endure cruel therapies which are supposed to keep them safe – sometimes they are sewn in fainting sacks and put in a hot room until they pass out. Sometimes they play the drowning game where their dresses are weighted and they must see how long they can stay ...more

    The thing I liked most about this book is that the author does not feel the need to explain everything to the reader: there are plenty of gaps for your own imagination to work with. The thing I liked least about this book is that the author does not explain enough to the reader.

    It’s a tricky balance to hit in a book like this. Normally, I am great fan of book with loose ends and open-ended story lines. I like to be left with something to think about, something I can project forward with my own i
