We begin by loving our parents, then we judge them, sometimes we forgive them." Backwaters is a comedy/drama of brother and sister - Thomas and Gretchen - now in their 30's and still living in the shadow of a past tragedy.

For someone who walked out on school declaring it 'a complete waste of time', Matt Swain seems to have spent an inordinate amount of time back in education. A love of the outdoors has sustained a career in agriculture with spare time spent hiking and writing. He is a Nuffield Scholar with over fifty published articles. This is his first novel.
