Do your part and spend an hour alone at the lake. These are the rules at foster mother Amelia's farm, where teens work to deal with their demons. There's Crystal, grieving her twin sister. Jodie and Zac are struggling to bring a pregnancy to term. Kate is reeling from her mother's abandonment. And Amelia, stalwart and dependable and loving Amelia, their glue, has become worryingly forgetful.

Waiting for Still Water is a sweeping story of love and redemption.
