A riveting story of heroism, heartache, and the power of love to heal all wounds by bestselling author Charles Martin. Murphy Shepherd is a man with many secrets. He lives alone on an island, tending the grounds of a church with no parishioners, and he’s dedicated his life to rescuing those in peril. But as he mourns the loss of his mentor and friend, Murph himself may be more lost than he realizes. When he pulls a beautiful woman named Summer out of Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway, Murph’s mission to lay his mentor to rest at the end of the world takes a dangerous turn. Drawn to Summer, and desperate to find her missing daughter, Murph is pulled deeper and deeper into the dark and dangerous world of modern-day slavery.

Only one green-eyed boy knows the truth, and he would do anything to keep her safe, even if it means betraying everything he holds dear.

Rayne is definitely real… and gorgeous. I feel like I’ve known him forever, but I have no idea why. Who is he? All he will tell me is that he’s a Water Keeper, tasked with using Healing Water to help the sick and hurt. But he’s been assigned to me. Only me. My own irresistible bodyguard. But, why? What is he protecting me from? I’m just a normal high school girl and that's all I want to be. RAYNE: I have a duty—to protect Sadie from a secret world she knows nothing about, or her place in it.

Each time the boy appears, Sadie's unexplainable attraction to him deepens along with her need to unravel his secrets.

She has to make a choice. Take the easy way out and run away from her problems, as usual, or move forward with courage and discover her own destiny.

Rayne had to break grievous laws in order to bring her there, and he is expected to pay the price. Sadie believes her father has the power to free Rayne, but he has been missing for days.

THE WATERKEEPER'S DAUGHTER is about what happens when a very angry man seeks revenge for the devastation wreaked on his family by the spraying of pesticides back in the fifties. Because of that, his mother died from cancer; his brother contracted Parkinson's; they lost the family farm; and his father committed suicide. Now someone's got to pay and he knows exactly who that someone will be. Very soon the word "regret" will have a whole new meaning for the one who did this—but by then it will be too late. "Lisa's husband is dead. Her daughter is missing. An unknown event from the distant past has come to visit revenge on a woman whose only crime is a vague tie to her estranged in-laws. This terrific whodunit will keep you guessing to the final pages." —Wayne Sapp, author of ARCTIC LIONS

"Raven's 8th edition of Environment offers more detailed content than the Visualizing text for a better understanding and integration of the core environmental systems and to view and analyze the role those systems play. Shorter, but still comprehensive coverage focuses on ethical decision making and key local environmental science issues, requiring readers to think critically about the course material outside of the classroom. Other features include brief text in the comprehensive segment; extensive chapter pedagogy to help reinforce the systems approach; more opportunities to think critically about the how systems intersect and fit together; and new data interpretation questions at the end of each chapter"--
