Introducing our first Young Adult novel!

Girls are disappearing on their way to the spring...

Will fear stop Talitha, the sole water gatherer for her hut, from searching for her friend—even if it means scaling the walls of the mine owners' compound, where locals are shot on sight?

And will terror block Moses path—or can this teenage hunter battle an underground human trafficking ring with ties to the cities on the other side of Great Mountain?

Join Talitha and Moses on their journey, one marked with violent drug lords, crippling jealousy, blinding anger, but also…tremendous beauty. And, the flutters of first love.

Meet other villagers and colorful characters along the way, all of whom are grappling with dire loss after a recent mine explosion. Become acquainted with multiple generations of a missionary family who sacrificed all, moving out to the African bush to fulfill a driving passion—one that most would call a crazy dream. Listen, as ageless questions are carried in on the hot winds of the Great Red Valley: Do you know what it means to truly be brave? And, what if you had to risk your life for a simple cup of water?

Dive into Brave Water and decide!

Brave Water

We live in the lap of luxury for the most part and fail to realize that we coexist on our planet with those that struggle to exist at all. Bave Water is a wake-up call. I entend to give copies of this work as Christmas gifts this year.

Not just another issue-awareness story

Overall story and faith and prayer details are good. Story is slow for the first half of the book, and the back-and-forth through time is consistent regarding Flora's labor.

Complex Themes Deftly Handled

As a mama to a newborn daughter, I found this an especially compelling read.

Robsdottir handles heavy subject matter with finesse and cultural sensitivity, approaching the hard reality of human trafficking without being too heavy-handed or didactic. She places her characters in nuanced, layered situations that reveal how things aren't always what they seem: motives aren't black and white, villains aren't always pure villainy, and heroes have Achilles heels. The plot becomes increasingly gripping as the story progresses.

The themes of the novel are worth your attention and the plot will make this a quick read.

A beautifully written debut novel!

Good job, Sarah!

Very moving story, highlighting the struggles of those in Africa who suffer so dramatically from lack of accessible good drinking water - something we in the West take so much for granted. Also, the issue of human trafficking, so prevalent in our day, certainly needs to be addressed. May God have mercy. Thank you Sarah for writing this book

I'm enjoying reading the book. It's hard to put down. It makes you feel you're right there with the characters. I intend to pass it along to my sisters. It's really good!
