Listen for Water

A 15-year-old gifted teen and her negligent, irresponsible mother, hurtling towards disaster and, ultimately, redemption. 

by Marie Beswich Arthur

“All I wanted was to be loved by someone who smelled like lemons, not tolerated by a joystick-wielding alien sitting in an ancient armchair hurtling down the highway in an airless bucket of tin.”

A stow-away. Failed parenting. A quest. 

A mother and a daughter find themselves on the ride of their lives, and only time will tell which way up they’ll land.

Marie Beswick Arthur has been a recipient of the Brendon Donnelly Award for Children’s Literature (poetry) and the Calgary Writers Association Short Fiction (short story). She lives in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
