About The Book:
Astrid Johansen swore she would never return to Heron Bay, Washington. Under Astrid’s watch seventeen years ago, her little sister, Nina, drowned in a reflecting pool. Though guilt has kept her away, Astrid can’t ignore her aunt Maude’s urgent plea to come back. Maude claims to have found a letter that will change everything about the past.
When Astrid arrives in Heron Bay, she finds Maude unconscious, perhaps the victim of an attack. As Maude lingers in a coma, Astrid uncovers alarming evidence that Nina’s drowning that tragic night was no accident. But in a town rife with secrets, and in a family still fractured by grief, who knows the truth?
Astrid’s investigation leads her down a trail of dark memories, lies, and betrayals that will shatter her perception of everyone she thought she knew—even herself.

“Dreaming of Water is a gripping, emotional tale of a family torn apart by tragedy, secrets, and an unsolved mystery that holds everyone hostage in grief. Both heart‑wrenching and suspenseful, it’s a masterfully written novel about love, betrayal, and ultimately letting go and moving on.” —Julianne MacLean, author of These Tangled Vines and Beyond the Moonlit Sea
“It’s a rare and delicious treat to pick up a book and know from the very start that you’re in the hands of a master. Dreaming of Water is a fast-paced tale, moody and rife with secrets, layered with family and betrayals, loss and love, all wrapped in Banner’s clean, polished prose. Book club fiction at its best.” ―Barbara O’Neal, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of When We Believed in Mermaids
“Rich in sensory detail, taut with family secrets and absolutely thrumming with suspense.” —Joy Jordan-Lake, bestselling author of Under a Gilded Moon and A Bend of Light
