Burying Water by KA Tucker

Burying Water

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

She survived rape, a brutal beating and being left for dead, but does it matter when she doesn’t even know who she is?

Since waking up she has learned a few things about herself: she knows she has a water tattoo on her hip, she is in Sisters, Oregon, and that no one is looking for her. Her saving grace is the compassionate family that saved her life: Dr. Meredith Alwood, her husband Sheriff Welles, and their daughter Amber who is a nurse at the hospital.

Months go by and ‘Jane’ is getting stronger, healing, and it is time for her to be discharged, but she has nowhere to go. Meredith suggests a women’s shelter or moving into the apartment above their neighbor Ginny’s house. ‘Jane’ only met the cantankerous elderly lady once, but believes it to be a better option then a women’s shelter.

Sheriff Welles helps ‘Jane’ get identification and she must pick a new name. She decides to go by Water, as it is the only link she has to her past. Soon Water is discharged from the hospital and moves into the apartment. Ginny and Water instantly form a bond. Ginny is one of my favorite characters in the book, I loved how she was protective of Water. She gave her a home, a place to belong, a life.

Water begins building a life for herself, she finds a job and sets up a routine helping Ginny around the ranch. She builds friendships with Amber and her coworker, Dakota. Ginny doesn’t approve of their neighbor’s son Jesse and she warns Water to stay away from that damn boy. Despite Ginny’s warnings Water finds something familiar about Jesse and is drawn to him.

Burying Water is the story of a girl who defies all odds and fights to survive. It is a story of epic, all consuming love that will break your heart and have you cheering for the couple. Jesse wants Water, he can’t help but want her, but he wants to her to be happy more. He wants her to find peace and get her second chance at life.

I loved how this story was told, it is in dual point of views with Jesse’s POV of the past and Water’s POV of the present. While it alternates from past and present, it is easy to follow.

I finished this book a few days ago and I cannot stop thinking about these characters. I feel like that is the mark of a good book, when you read as much as I do - typically a book a day, but you are still thinking about the characters you read about days ago. That is how I feel about Burying Water, this story ripped my heart out and I loved every second of it.

This story is beautiful, breathtaking, and I absolutely loved it. I highly recommend this one!
