These are the rules at foster mother Amelia's farm--the rules that saved Rachel when she first came to stay at Walton Lake as a troubled girl. Now, after a horrifying crisis at work, Rachel has run back to the farm again.
But she doesn't find the peace she's hoping for. There are new fostered teens at the farm with their own demons, and the sprawling family she became a part of at Amelia's farm seems to be full of heartbreak and worry.
There's Crystal, grieving her twin sister. Jodie and Zac are struggling to bring a pregnancy to term. Kate is reeling from her mother's abandonment.
And Amelia, stalwart and dependable and loving Amelia, their glue, has become worryingly forgetful.
A sweeping story of love and redemption, Waiting for Still Water will delight fans of Maeve Binchy and Lesley Crewe.
