Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Charles Martin's breathtaking novel of love and redemption.

Charlie Finn had to grow up fast, living alone by age 16. Highly intelligent, he earned a life-changing scholarship to Harvard, where he learned how to survive and thrive on the outskirts of privileged society. That skill served him well in the cutthroat business world, as it does in more lucrative but dangerous ventures he now operates off the coast of Miami. Charlie tries to separate relationships from work. But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America, where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter.

Will their fated encounter present Charlie with a way to seek the redemption he thought was impossible - and free his heart to love one woman as he never knew he could?

Wonderful!

Where does Water from My Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's pretty high up there. I definitely recommend.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Main character. He's flawed, but overall a good person.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Stillwell – was your favorite?

Well, he performed all of them, so kind of answers itself. I have to say, Kevin Stillwell reminds me of Scott Brick but in a good way. I tend to not listen to Scott Brick because he's too overdramatic, in my opinion. So I really enjoyed Kevin Stilwell.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!

Never a disappointment

Would you listen to Water from My Heart again? Why?

This book was written from the heart. Both my husband and listended to this book together and ended it with tears streaming down our cheeks. What a wonderful story of opening hearts and forgiving ourselves.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Charles. A man with flaws that all of us have and none of us want to admit to but with the strength to admit to them.

What does Kevin Stillwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He takes me to the place of the story. He is stunning.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made us cry. We loved it.

Any additional comments?

Charles -- take some much needed time off, but please hurring back to your keyboard.

Another great Martin story of love and redemption.

Enjoyed this book except, as with other Charles Martin books, it kept me up listening. Of course that the sign of an enjoyable book now isn't it.

6 Stars!

Incredible, heart wrenching, inspirational and uplifting. This fictional story incorporates a real life, historical account of a hurricane that devastated Nicaragua. In addition, worldly wealth and perceived happiness are eventually given up for true contentment. Priceless!

The longer I have been a member of audible the more stingy I have become with my 5 star ratings. If I could give a book 6 stars I would.

Good Listen

This is probably one of my favorite books that Martin has written – I like them all but this had something special...probably because it included more of his

Best story I have read this year!

As a veteran of several mission trips to Honduras and Africa this story touched my heart. I highly recommend it. I am sorry it had to end.
