Mindy McGinnis’ debut novel, Not A Drop To Drink, is a powerful and compelling story of survival, love, and family in a post-apocalyptic world. Lynn knows every threat to her pond, from drought to coyotes to wanderers just looking for a drink. And she makes sure that everyone walks away thirsty, or doesn’t walk away at all. Lynn was born to this life, taught by her mother from an early age to use a rifle and she knows the price of survival. But smoke from the south means strangers, and suddenly her pond is threatened beyond her ability to defend it. McGinnis’ novel is raw and sharp, describing Lynn’s journey of self-discovery with a stark language that beautifully envelopes you in the atmosphere of the novel itself.

“Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.”
