This book is full of strong women who live their lives true to themselves, not what society 'expects' of them: two sisters and one daughter who are dowers, able to find water. The battle between greed and development vs. the environment is age old. The author shows a compromise can be reached. And he shows that a father's love for his daughter (and her mother) is worth more than his high-paying job as lawyer to the developer. Well written, believable story.
