Set in Macedonia immediately after World War 2, The Big Water tells the story of a group of children orphaned by the war and their life in an orphanage. Full of characters and incidents, the book presents a child’s view of life that is both humorous and bleak and, by its end, very moving.  This was also made into an award winning film called The Great Water.
