Easy summer read, one of the better by Bohjalian. Little freaky reading it while watching the lake levels get really low here in the Laurentiens.... ( )

This story of a lawyer, his wife, and child living in VT brings factors of politics, family, and spiritualism surrounding and connecting to water in a flowing manner. Something drew me to this book and I'm very glad it did! ( )

I agree wholeheartedly with another Goodreads member who says: " Hmmm. Why do I keep reading his books? I suppose because he's a really good story teller and in these days of facts and figures and "reality", we all need a good story just for it's own sake." ( )

This is the story of environmentalists against developers. The storyline is simple. A Vermont ski resort needs to expand in order to stay in business. They are looking to clear trees and tap into a river in order to build more ski trails and man-made snow. That means obtaining permits and permissions. For lawyer Scottie Winston, working for Powder Peak, this means more jobs for the community...or so he says over and over again. Is he trying to convince himself? The trouble is Scottie is married to a water witch with minimal skills. More so, his sister-in-law is considered the most talented dowser in the country. Her abilities to find water, and even missing travelers is legendary. She is marrying the region's most vocal environmentalist who opposes Powder Peak's expansion. To make matters worse, Scottie's own daughter is proving to be an even more accomplished water witch than her aunt...Scottie must chose between his job and his family especially when a drought complicates things not only for Powder Peak but for the entire community.

And Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock
with his rod twice; and water came forth abundantly,
and the congregation drank, and their cattle.
 - Numbers 20:11

Kilimanjaro is a snow covered mountain 19,710 feet high, and it
is said to be the highest mountain in Africa. Its western summit is
called the Masai "Ngaje Ngai," the House of God. Close to the
western summit there is the dried and frozen carcass of a leopard.
No one has explained what the leopard was seeking at that altitude.
