Water Bearer
by Wendi Christner

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

In a small Southern community, inseparable lifelong friends prepare to follow their own paths, but one last summer together changes their lives forever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

“Why did you bring me here?”

In her palm, he placed a chain with a small silver medallion of a bare-chested man balanced on the flayed tail of a mermaid and an urn tipped over his shoulder. The silver had tarnished and the edges were rubbed with wear. Cassidy had seen the zodiac charm a million times. It had belonged to Jared’s mother. He’d worn it since they were kids, never once taking it off.

“I’m a Leo.” Her voice was as soft as the breeze that brushed the grasses on the hill.

“I know.” He lifted the medallion from her hand. “This is my sign. I thought maybe you could use it more than me.”

She swallowed the lump that had risen in her throat.

“Aquarius is the Water Bearer,” he said, reaching behind her neck to clasp the chain. His fingers brushed her skin, leaving goosebumps. The chain settled into place, and the medallion dropped like a quarter between her breasts. The warmth of his touch still lingered on the silver, and her heart swelled.

At that moment, she understood what it would mean to leave Jared behind. She fought for a witty comment, something to break the tension, something to make them laugh. But she could only stare at the gift he had given her, blurred by the tears burning her eyes.

He reached for her hand again. His thumb massaged the ridges of her knuckles, and he squeezed as if he’d never let go. “When you’re ready to put this fire out, maybe you can come back home.”

  1. Hi Wendi. Please tell us a little bit about your new book cover for Water Bearer. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image?

    Looks like Tampa will get drenched in the path of Hermine. Stay safe and best of luck with your virtual tour!

    1. Thank you so much! Tampa is definitely getting drenched! Luckily, my house is on high ground, and we only had a couple of small trees fall over.
      The artist is Bao Nhi. She just blows me away with her work. I fell in love with the image the moment I saw it. So much so, I had it enlarged and am having it framed. The image speaks to me because in the story Jared, our hero, tries to be the "Water Bearer" so to speak, for Cassidy, our heroine. In the end, she has to be her own Water Bearer. I love that the image shows her doing just that. And the colors...don't even get me started on the colors. :)
