OXFORD, England - July 2, 2014 - PRLog -- British author Ruth Mancini's gripping novel, Swimming Upstream (Booktrope), is one of only 20 literary fiction semi-finalists for the 2014 Kindle Book Awards. The popular awards draw many hopeful independent fiction and non-fiction authors.

The Kindle Book Review’s Kindle Book Awards is in its third year. The top five finalists in each of the seven categories will be announced in September. Category winners receive $500 in cash as well as $300 in promotional credit. Last year's literary fiction winner was Don’t Tell Anyone by Laurie Boris.

This is the third award that Swimming Upstream has been up for this year. The women's fiction novel made the literary shortlist for the 50 books worth reading from Indie Author Land in April. It was also nominated for a RONE award. Winners for the RONE awards will be announced mid-July.

About Swimming Upstream

“I once read that the end of a relationship is like being involved in a road traffic accident. Which is quite fitting really, given what happened.”

After seven years, Lizzie wonders whether she is truly happy with her long-term boyfriend. When one wrong step and a chance meeting set off an unexpected chain of events, her life starts breaking up. On the same day that she meets Martin, an attractive lifeguard, her old friend, Catherine, re-appears. But is Martin really all he seems? And what is the secret that Catherine is hiding? As Lizzie struggles to confront the ghosts of her past, can she survive the shocking twist that will change the course of her future?

Swimming Upstream is a life-affirming and often humorous story about getting over a relationship breakup. It is also a story about female friendship, love and divided loyalties – and the moral choices we find ourselves making when the chips are down.
