Always alone...always thirsting for love. Marah's life has been difficult. Orphaned and left in the care of a cold step-father, she thought she found escape in marriage. But when tragedy leaves her alone again, with a house full of children to tend, harsh reality sets in. Will Marah ever know joy, or is she destined to live up to her name and be bitter forever? Then one day a stranger visits the well and asks for a drink of water, a stranger who knows everything she has ever done. And suddenly Marah is given a taste of all she had so long thirsted for.
