Watermark

by
Teresa Mandrell's first encounter with advertising executive Rayann Germaine begins badly and goes downhill from there. Within minutes of their meeting, Rayann dubs Teresa a "bumbling amateur". The event changes the course of Teresa's life -- she abandons the corporate world for what she hopes is a more satisfying career in Fine Arts Management.

When budget cuts leave her without work, Teresa gets a job as a design artist in another firm, only to discover that the new department head is...Rayann! But the difference in the woman's demeanor is so startling that Teresa can't believe her eyes. Although the woman she'd fought with had been insensitive and rude, she was full of fire and passion. This Rayann is cold and withdrawn.

To Teresa's chagrin, the woman doesn't even remember their fight. In fact, the two fall easily into an increasingly harmonious work relationship. As they grow even closer, Teresa slowly uncovers layer after layer of Rayann's hurt and pain. When she at last arrives at the terrible truth, Teresa is left with one burning question: How can she turn Rayann's heart away from grief and lead her back toward life and love?

Watermark is the heartbreaking and heartmending sequel to Touchwood.

Reviews

Lambda Book Report

Carol LeMasters - July, 1999: Her insightful portrayals of the young, hot-headed Teresa and the tormented Rayann pull us in immediately, and her descriptive powers are impressive. One of the most haunting scenes occurs in the gay male bar in which Teresa and Rayann have their first sexual encounter. Kallmaker brilliantly uses the eruption of passion between them to explore the complex ways in which lust and pain, guilt and rage, can intermingle.

Bay Area Reporter

Deborah Pfeiffer
Touchwood, 1990 - Kallmaker has a sure sense of the power of language and of the power of eros. The two are combined in scenes that left me gasping ... with pleasure. Touchwood ... is a wonderfully written, wonderfully entertaining novel. That it addresses, with wisdom and compassion and delight, the most profound questions of who we are and how we define ourselves, is an extra gift, one to be treasured and enjoyed.
Watermark, 1999 - Of all Karin Kallmaker's very fine novels, Touchwood is my favorite. Watermark, a sequel ... may even be better. This is a rich, compelling, wonderful novel, one that will live long in your memory and your heart. .
