The Springsweet

by Saundra Mitchell

eBook

Heartbroken over the tragic death of her fiancé, seventeen-year-old Zora Stewart leaves

Baltimore for the frontier town of West Glory, Oklahoma, to help her young widowed

aunt keep her homestead going. There she discovers that she possesses the astonishing

ability to sense water under the parched earth. When her aunt hires her out as a

"springsweet" to advise other settlers where to dig their wells, Zora feels the burden of

holding the key to something so essential to survival in this unforgiving land.

Even more, she finds herself longing for love the way the prairie thirsts for water.

Maybe, in the wildness of the territories, Zora can finally move beyond simply surviving

and start living.
