Annie Oh, a middle-aged wife, mother, and outsider artist, has shattered her family's foundations. Annie has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy, cultured, confident Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her professional success, after twenty-seven years of marriage and three children. Annie... and Viveca plan to marry in Three Rivers, Connecticut, the Oh family's hometown, where gay marriage has recently been legalized. However, the impending wedding elicits a wide range of emotions and opens a Pandora's box of toxic secrets—dark and painful truths that have festered beneath the Ohs' surface for years.

Wally Lamb brilliantly captures the essence of human experience in vivid and unforgettable characters struggling to find hope and redemption in the aftermath of trauma and loss, with humor and breathtaking compassion.We Are Wateris vintage Wally Lamb—a compulsively readable, generous, and uplifting masterpiece that delves deep into the complexities of the human heart to explore the ways in which we.
