I'm not sure how to lay this out, it seems there are several elements, the imagery itself--the many ways IM sneaks water and watery-related items into her novels, what its presence presages or announces, and the specifics of each novel. The most interesting to discuss, perhaps is the second?
Bill's daughter (I can't believe I've already forgotten her name; ETA: Felicity!) performs a magic ritual on a beach, between low and high tide.
In The flight from the enchanter there's a dramatic, overwrought scene at the beach the "enchanter" Mischa Fox and teenage Annette had driven to. Fox had almost driven into the sea, then he stands staring at it with terror and fascination, gets his shoes wet and tastes the water, then Annette, for no discernible reason, hurls herself (dress and all) into the water and he basically has to fish her out before she drowns.
I'll be terrible at this, I have no idea what any of this means. :)
And of course we know Rain will be nothing but transformative trouble the minute we hear her name. When reading it I didn't think about that at all, I have to confess!
I want to write about The Bell one of my favourites so far, but I'll have to get home to flip through it and remind myself of the watery details.
