Product description
Synopsis
Both a medical drama and meditation on motherhood, The Water Giver is Joan Ryan's honest account of her doubts and mistakes in raising a learning-disabled son and the story of how his near-fatal accident gave her a second chance as a parent.

The Water Giver is the gripping story of a near-fatal accident and an examination of how the tragic event gave the author a new start as a mother.

Reviews
"Everything Joan Ryan writes is highly intelligent and full of insight, butThe Water Giveris something special. It is a harrowing and beautiful account of a child's medical crisis, resonant with Ms. Ryan's trademark great humor and heart. It is a story of a small family with a great kid coming through a medical and emotional trauma beyond most people's wildest dreams, or nightmares, and it is a story about the healing grace of deep friendships and a loving community. I couldn't put it down." - ANNE LAMOTT, author ofOperating Instructions and Grace (Eventually)

"Given the perspective that sometimes only a crisis can bring, Ryan learns to forgive herself for the smaller struggles of her son's earlier years, to take each day's challenges as they come and to trust herself to be the only mother that he needs."--Publishers Weekly

"This is a story that will move the heart of anyone who has ever been a parent or a child. A primer for patience and responsibility, and a testament to a mother's love." -- MITCH ALBOM

"We have to admire Ryan for tackling these topics. It is one thing tolive through the experiences as they occur; it is quite another tore-create them honestly and effectively. And though the story Ryantells is unique...the themes of love, grace and redemption that runthrough her discussion are ideas with which we can all relate." --Christina Eng,The San Francisco Chronicle
