    Not a Drop to Drink Publisher's Summary Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water. Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most important, people looking for a drink.   Not a Drop to Drink is one of the best books with the best heroine I've read in a long time. It's the story of Lynn, born and raised in a world racked by cholera and fallen apart in predictably human ways. She's raised in solitude with her hard-as-iron mother. Until everything changes.
