It's a beautiful love story about the innocence of children and how they grow. Cassie is a young girl that lost her parents and family home in a fire, she thinks she's to blame along with others of the small community that won't let her forget labeling her the devil.
It's been 8 years since the accident but she still has nightmares about it, re living it in her dreams. She still smells the smoke and can't go to the ruins of the house. Her childhood friend Jared tries to help her forget and forgive herself but how can he when some in the community call her the devil for what happened.
He has stuck by her through all of it as have a few others, but they too are labeled by people.
It is a god fearing community that go to church every week and go to the small store for the gossip, what they don't know they make up.
Her grandmother knows Cassie is a good girl as do people that actually know her, some are trying to help her using the teachings from their fathers and grandfathers, a lot would call it witchcraft or mumbo jumbo that can't help save her, even Cassie doesn't really believe it can work but she goes along with it anyway.
The book takes you through so many emotions, I cried in parts but laughed in others. I loved the way it was written about how towns still lived in the past even in this day and age.
Cassie and Jared had grown up together from babies, more like siblings but they also have feelings for each other, that was a boundary they couldn't cross because it would ruin what they had.
I couldn't put this book down, I'd say after the next chapter which then went to the next etc.. It's a refreshing change to the normal sex with no story behind it, every character holds a story which makes you want to read more. I wanted to shake them and tell them to look at what they had. Cassie is a great character who has a good heart if she could only let the past stay in the past, Jared was going to help her see that she couldn't keep blaming herself and to let it go. He'd help her in any way he could even if it meant losing her forever.
It's quite deep and draws you in, I loved it and would recommend it to anyone that likes the innocence of a real love sorry. I can't wait to read more from this author.
Oh. My. Word! The Water Bearer is a 10-tissue book! I laughed and I cried and then I laughed until I cried. This is a book about guilt, facing fear and ghosts of the past, healing, redemption and understanding love. So many times I find that as a non-American, books revolving around small Southern communities are difficult to read as the syntax and diction are difficult to follow. However, the language in Water Bearer flowed so easily and naturally, that I was swept along in the current. Cassidy and Jared have been neighbours and best friends from almost before they could walk. They have grown up together and shared every experience up until the time of graduating from high school. Cassidy is plagued by terribly memories and her whole aim is to get out of town to college as fast as she can, and hopefully never to return. With the help of Cassidy’s beloved grandmother, a neighbour who experiments with herbs, and Jared, she is forced to come face to face with her worst nightmares and in the process to understand what is really important in life. This book touched me at a very deep emotional level and I think I am going to remember it for a long time to come. Definitely a keeper.
I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.
