REESE RAVES ABOUT A ‘DOWN­TON ABBEY’ STAR’S DE­BUT

WHO - - Winter Reads -

Like her A Wrin­kle in Time co-star Oprah be­fore her, ac­tress Reese Wither­spoon has her own Reese’s Book Club. For the 572,000 In­sta­gram fol­low­ers she’s gar­nered so far, Wither­spoon se­lects a book each month that cel­e­brates women’s writ­ing.

In June, Down­ton Abbey ac­tress Cather­ine Stead­man (in­set) made the list with her first novel, Some­thing in the Wa­ter, which Wither­spoon praised as “a psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller that cap­ti­vated me from page one. What un­folds makes for a wild, page-turn­ing ride! It’s the per­fect read.”

Honey­moon­ers Mark and Erin are scuba div­ing in Bora Bora when they find some­thing in the deep blue, some­thing they de­cide to keep to them­selves. That doesn’t stop a wave of con­se­quences from crash­ing on their shores.

Stead­man spins a page-turner for which Wither­spoon, as she did with Gone Girl, has al­ready op­tioned the film rights.

“It starts with a beau­ti­ful hon­ey­moon that turns into a web of in­trigue,” teased Wither­spoon to Reese’s Book Club mem­bers.

Some­thing in the Wa­ter. Writ­ten by Cather­ine Stead­man. Pub­lished by Si­mon & Schuster Aus­tralia. RRP $35.00.
