"Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survive--but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to Jane Doe for another day, the woman renames herself Water for the tiny, hidden marking on her body--the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge. Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won't Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him? Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn't know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she'll stay so much safer--and happier---that way. And that's why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with harsh truths better left buried. The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface"--cover p. 4.

This book begins dramatically with a Prologue of "Now" and then moves into the events that lead up to that. Very effective, grabbing one's attention.

"Surviving Ice", the 4th book of K.A. Tucker's series led me to this book, "Burying Water". Although plans are to read the 2 books that follow, I did not become as engaged in the characters here as I did with "Surviving Ice" - they simply were not as complex or intriguing. (Still, I'll give this a 3+ rating.)

Beautiful love story about the resilience of true love and what is meant to be will always be.

If you are looking for a book that is written beautifully, has great characters and a unique story line, then you need to read Burying Water.
I like how the theme of water flows throughout the book. I really like this line from the book:
“He said the truth is like that of water: it doesn’t matter how hard you try to bury it; it’ll always find it’s way to the surface. It’s resilient.”

"The first hints of blue appear in the sky when I finally manage to drift off, the old woman's words a dark shawl of unease hanging over me."
