“a great read for a great cause”
~Jill Hendrix, Fiction Addiction
“…filled with many memorable stories and poems…I thoroughly enjoyed reading…”
~ Jackie K. Cooper, author/reviewer, jackiekcooper.com
“A meditation on water, an anthology of heartfelt poetry and prose such as only a group of southerners could create, and a gesture of love and respect for people in need.”
~ Lady Banks’ Commonplace Book, Authors ‘Round the South
“…brims with true reflections of humanity–of our relationships to water and to God, of loss and life and the funny way God has of often using the former to pour out the latter. Though the incredible contributor list (including Lisa Wingate, Sarah Loudin Thomas, Karen White, Nicole Seitz, and many others) initially piqued my interest, it’s the beauty of the collected thoughts in this little book that will earn it future rereads.”
~ Brandy Heineman, author of Whispers in the Branches
In response to the “thousand year flood” of 2015 in South Carolina, eighteen beloved and bestselling authors graciously contributed a water-themed story, essay, novel excerpt, or poem to this heart-warming and thought-provoking anthology. Like a winding river, their words meander through memories and nostalgia or swell in a fit of faith, fear, or questioning. Some offer lessons learned by the water or new beginnings because of it. There are even works of fiction—it often speaks the clearest truth. This is a timeless book for water-lovers and storm survivors. Proceeds support water-disaster relief efforts.
