A riveting new story of heroism, heartache, and the power of love to heal all wounds. 

 

Murphy Shepherd is a man with many secrets. He lives alone on an island, tending the grounds for a church with no parishioners, and he’s dedicated his life to rescuing those in peril. But as he mourns the loss of his mentor and friend, Murph himself may be more lost than he realizes.

 

When he pulls a beautiful woman named Summer out of Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway, Murph’s mission to lay his mentor to rest at the end of the world takes a dangerous turn. Drawn to Summer, and desperate to find her missing daughter, Murph is pulled deeper and deeper into the dark and dangerous world of modern-day slavery.

 

With help from some unexpected new friends, including a faithful Labrador he plucks from the ocean and an ex-convict named Clay, Murph must race against the clock to locate the girl before he is consumed by the secrets of his past—and the ghosts who tried to bury them.

 

With Martin's trademark lyricism and poignant prose, The Water Keeper is at once a tender love story a heartrending search for freedom, and a reminder that the needs of the one outweigh those of the ninety-nine.

Praise

 

“Charles Martin understands the power of story and he uses it to alter the souls and lives of both his characters and his readers...”

— Patti Callahan Henry, NYT Bestselling author

 

'Martin (The Mountain Between Us) explores themes of grace, mercy, and forgiveness in this sweeping love story. . . In this relatable tale of recovery from physical and emotional trauma, Martin beautifully captures the essence of Christian principles of sacrifice and forgiveness.'

—Publishers Weekly STARRED  for "Send Down the Rain" 

 

Instead of endeavoring to prove the historical accuracy of the Bible or outlining how to defend the Christian faith, novelist Martin (The Mountain Between Us) examines how life would be different if the Bible was taken to be literally true in this meticulous work…Deeply reflective and heartfelt, Martin’s book offers readers much to meditate on and provides encouragement for those who desire to follow the biblical mandate to work out their faith “with fear and trembling.
—Publishers Weekly for "What If It's True"
