Description - Where the Serpent Lives by Ruth Padel

Why is Rosamund so paralyzed by Tyler and his secrets? The whole world was once in love with her. Now, married to the dangerously charismatic Tyler, estranged from her conservationist father, despairing of her teenage son's silences, she feels completely alone. Revisiting the almost forgotten world of her Indian childhood may help, but can her family survive the changes she must make to save herself? Ruth Padel, acclaimed for her brilliant nature writing, has set her captivating debut novel in London, Devon and the jungles of India. But at its heart is a family in crisis. Where the Serpent Lives is a beautifully evocative tale for our times about love, science, renewal, and the place of wild nature in human lives, from one of our finest poets.
