The Water Seeker
Henry Holt and Company 2010
Amos Kincaid is the dowser’s son; his father can find water at anytime, armed with only his sticks. In the 1800‘s West, this is a valuable skill, especially for people trying to build farms. Amos has inherited this skill, but is it a blessing or a curse? Through this true-to-life novel, Amos learns to deal with death and new life, loss and gain, love and heartbreak, and ultimately, who he truly is. This was a good historical fiction, with a hint of supernatural, a hint of mystery, and a lot of heart. I liked this novel and would recommend it for any historical fiction fan.
The Dowser's Son aka The Water Seeker
For people that like love and emphathy. this is a good book for you. This book is very depressing and slow. Has a great story lone but lots of sorrow and sadness. The ending makes it happy and makes the story better.
Rating: 3 Q. Readable.
