Product Description

A retired priest, Murphy Shepherd lives alone on an island tending the grounds for a church with no parishioners. But when his best friend dies and asks Murphy to scatter his ashes on the other side of the world, he takes off on his boat to carry out his friend's wishes. 

Along the way he meets a dance instructor named Summer who is searching for her daughter. She believes she was abducted into the world of trafficking.

As they search for Angel, they discover a stowaway. And its not coincidence that he chose Murphy's boat. There is more than it first seems, but memories have long compelled him to keep the truth hidden.

Publisher's Description

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 Charles Martin’s trademark lyricism and poignant prose, The Water Keeper is at once a tender love story and a heartrending search for freedom.

Preview from Charlie Martin:

"I truly consider it a privilege to be this man’s son—not just because he’s awesome, but because I don’t have to wait to read his newest novels.

I started this book on Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. . . . Eight. Hours. Later. I turned the final page on my iPad and let out a breath I’d been holding in for close to seven and a half hours.

I can’t explain to you enough the roller coaster of emotions. I laughed. At times I didn’t breathe. Other times I read really fast in anticipation and suspense—and then re-read to make sure I didn’t miss anything important. At times I fist pumped in celebration. I even shouted a couple times in relief. But then, yes, I also shed a tear or two. Then I cussed out my dad because he did the whole rip-your-heart-in-half-thing that we all love/hate him for. Then I repented of those words because the next scene was usually one where he pulled the whole blind-side-rug-out-from-under-you move and I was fist pumping again.

I’m telling you, it’s an action-packed, classic Charles Martin romance novel unlike anything I’ve ever read. And remember . . . the day you pick up this book is the day you become temporarily unavailable to the world."

Praise for Charles Martin:

Open the pages of this book and you’ll enter the world of characters caught up in a real-life drama that grips the heart.
