Not a Drop to Drink

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Mindy McGinnis

Narrated By: Cassandra Campbell

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: September 2013

Duration: 8 hours 6 minutes


Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.
Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most important, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty or doesn't leave at all.
Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.
But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, the nighttime threats, and the gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won't stop until they get it. . . .
With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl's journey in a barren world not so different from our own.

    I really enjoyed listening to this. It's slow paced but the author did a good job of creating an ominous environment that surrounded Lynn, the main character. Lynn also has a great story arc, she learns how to love, grows trust and even allows herself to feel. Wish the story could have been longer.
