During a historic nationwide drought, desert-land stretches as far as the eye can see, but there are some people called Water Witchers who have the ability to sense and find water beneath the ground. They do not advertise their ability for fear of being used for slavery. Corbin is one of those people and he runs into a pair of siblings desperate to survive. He quickly learns that first impressions are deceiving. He is intrigued by them, especially Everleigh. Despite his tendency to keep to himself, a barbaric new law makes him go against it in order to protect her. 

There are ways around this law, some are legal but most are not. Either way, Corbin is not losing sight of the two siblings and will even risk revealing his gift of water witching if it means helping them. Limits are tested, loyalty is questioned and trust becomes fragile but if there is one thing threading their lives together, its determination to survive living in a time of thirst.
