Publisher's Description

    H2O is a contemporary crossover women’s novel that tells the story of Kate Pepper, a successful young business woman in Seattle whose life is suddenly—and strangely—turned upside down. Unexplainable visions torment her every time she gets wet. Sinking into despair, frantic to avoid water at any cost, Kate ultimately finds romance and redemption through the advice of simple people who love her for who she is, not what she was.
   Kate Pepper has it all . . . a razor-sharp intellect, perfect health, stunning beauty, a wildly successful career, and all the money she can spend. Or rather, she thinks she has it all.
   Despite the perfect shell, there’s something dark inside Kate. Terrible visions send her into a deep depression and her world crumbles. All her business savvy and elite connections don’t make a difference; she has lost control.
Who will save her? Xavier, her predatory boyfriend? Or Candice, the Down syndrome waitress at her favorite coffee shop? At the bottom of her dark well, desperate to get out of the water, there’s nowhere to reach but up.
   H2O—a fascinating allegorical look at success, sanity and spiritual redemption in a young woman’s relationship with water.

Editorial Reviews

If water can hold truth then the latest work of speculative Christian fiction by prolific techno thriller author Austin Boyd and sci-fi author Brannon Hollingsworth is sure to open the floodgates for that genre.  H2O is a Christian Twilight Zone Episode (maybe a little Frasier thrown in as well) with all the trappings, twists and turns of a Mr. Serling plot but with 21st century characters revolving around protagonist, Kate Pepper.  We follow Kate, an independent-minded and professional young woman who is living the dream of success until a mysterious affliction turns her high-tech life into chaos.  Here the most basic of elements, water, takes her on a journey of wild fantastic visions and sweeps her into an alternate world and search for meaning.  It is first rate fantasy and storytelling. Boyd and Hollingsworth deliver their collaboration in an engaging style, spilling over with subtle irony and enough suspense that will satisfy and won't leave you thirsty.
