Award-winning young adult novel!

Winner of several 2023 Catholic Media Association Book Awards!

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!

Beautiful, heartwrenching story

I bought this book as an Easter gift for my three daughters, ages 13, 14 and 16. All three of them devoured it, and I myself picked it up when they were done and couldn't put it down. The story-telling style feels authentic, and the characters are all so real, so vulnerable. We all just love this book!


Well written!

Engaging and important

This book is well written, with engaging characters and a compelling storyline. I read it first, but I plan to have my nearly 14 year old daughter read it soon. Excellent story

Karen Bordewick

It is a gift. Have not read it

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.

About the Author

Sarah Robsdottir is a homeschooling mom to seven growing sons. One day a flyer arrived in her mailbox describing the dire need for clean drinking water in developing nations; it also explained how water gatherers are often targeted on their paths to the spring by human traffickers. Sarah locked eyes with the teenage girl on the cover and knew she had to tell her story.
