    1 thought on “The Heiress of Water: A Novel”

    1. The Heiress of Water by Sandra Rodriguez Barron is a book i blindly picked up from the bargain bin when i needed something to read and was out of rented books. for that, it was pretty good. Partly set in El Salvador, and partly in Connecticut, it's a very latin american styled book, like Isabelle Allende, who is even quoted on the front. Lots of that magical realism sort of thing, but a little toned down from some authors. The book is about the sea, and 2 generations trying to find medicine from [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this book. It's the first book in a while the kept me up late, late, late because I just wanted to see how it would end. The basic plot centers on a woman who grew up in an extremely rich family in El Salvadore who fled with her American father to the States after her mother is killed during the Salvadoran revolution (uprising?). She becomes a physical therapist and through work beccomes involved with the mother and husband of a comatose woman. There's this whole part of the plo [...]

    3. There are LOTS of thought provoking ideas and contrasting ideas brought up/discussed - definitely a good book club read. Contrasts like christianity/catholicism versus nature, wealth vs. poverty, traditional medicine vs. experimentation. Love is a big part of the book and the different aspects of love we all find within our lives and in our hearts. I really did like this book. I especially loved the imagery of the sea. I started out thinking negatively of this book - was worried it would be anot [...]

    4. The ending of this book doesn't answer the question "what happened?" Too much plot pressure was built up that was never released. The story line had great potential, but the book needed another 25 pages.I felt all the characters were the same: they all had the same kind and level of wit, and seemed to operate under the same motivations.An enjoyable read, but didn't really deliver.

    5. Mother and husband hover over their wife and daughter who has been in a coma for 2 years after a car accident. Seeking help they run into Monica a woman who left El Salvador for Connecticut with her father at 12 after her mother drowned. Monica has researched marine shells that their poisonous venom jolts coma victims back to life. All parties end up back in El Salvador. The story kept me entertained and the ending was a pleaser

    6. I LOVED this novel. I love the mystical/magical aspects of it. I loved the descriptive language that takes me to a whole different world. I felt the characters were complex and engaging. I especially loved the water imagery throughout and the family mystery surrounding the characters. I found the Yvette chapters really interesting as I had never encountered a character who is in a comma through the entire book. Her point of view was really intriguing. However, I too felt the ending was wanting. [...]

    7. Touching and movingA story of love . . . a mother's love, a man's love for his wife, a daughter's love for her mother and her father, and so much more. It's also a story of betrayal, loss and recovery. The characters became real to me. I could feel what they felt. I could see what they saw. I felt as if I was present. What a gift.

    8. We read this for book club, and our "discussion" was only 10 minutes long. The book was a bit trite, and we didn't feel connected to any of the characters. I was interested enough to continue reading it, chapter after chapter, but it didn't draw conflicting viewpoints from it's readers as I think it intended to.

    9. This book had an interesting plot. It was different from anything else I have read in that regard. However, for me it was a little slow. Lots of dialogue that seemed a little forced and fake. I finished the book because I wanted to see how the story ended, not because I loved the style of writing.

    10. OK, I really, really wanted to like this book. But I found it enragingly implausible and boring. I felt no connection whatsoever to the characters. It was predictable. It was trite. It was a waste of my time and money.

    11. look for the alternate ending on the author's website. it is her original vision of how the story would end, before she was talked into the editor's version.

    12. This book isn't life changing and it was sappy in parts but it was a page turner and I finished it pretty quickly. The plot revolves around venomous snails.

    13. Someone my dad knows wrote this book so I gave it a shot. It was actually pretty interesting. A little formulaic but the plot caught my attention and kept me interested. A good beach book.

    14. Like STAY WITH ME, the second book by Sandra, THE HEIRESS is outstanding. Sandra is one of my new favorites. You must read this bookI couldn't put it down.

    15. Several plot points were a little too convenient. The whole thing felt a little too tidy. I wanted more conflict.

    16. I thought this was a fantastic read! I wasn't able to predict what was going to happen and that is a good thing.

    17. I think for me it started off a little slow, but picked up, and I couldn't put it down!! It had this magical feel to it. Definitely a page turner and a good summer read.
