Publisher's Summary

Orphaned as a child and sent to live with her hard-drinking, blarney-spouting grandfather, Una Moss manages to grow up sheltered from the violence all around her. She is vaguely aware of the hushed talk about politics and the cryptic comments her grandfather makes about her parents' accidental death. But, generally speaking, she's a normal kid - a bright student with a circle of mischievous girlfriends, and a healthy obsession with boys.

When Una meets Aidan, she is swept off her feet. He is solid and dependable, a sexy and attentive lover, and he's in love with her. But Aidan, to Una's endless sorrow, is not the man she thinks he is.

Water Carry Me is a spellbinding novel of love and betrayal, set against the backdrop of contemporary Ireland. With the strains of U2 in the background and the spectre of "The Troubles" looming large, Thomas Moran has created an unforgettable heroine and a heartbreaking story.

What the Critics Say

"Hypnotic...Una Moss is one of the most remarkable characters to grace fiction's pages." (Washington Post Book World)
"The best thing about Moran's third novel is how he so deftly manages to balance the realms of the personal and the political." (The New York Times Book Review)

    Story
    "Youthful mistakes still hurt quite a bit"
    What made the experience of listening to Water, Carry Me the most enjoyable?

    This story has a few unexpected twists and turns and yet feels very true to life, a story that a young person or even a not very young person might fall into to their regret. Very moving story.
