New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin's breathtaking novel of love and redemption.Charlie Finn had to grow up fast, living alone by age sixteen. Highly intelligent, he earned a life-changing scholarship to Harvard, where he learned how to survive and thrive on the outskirts of privileged society. That skill served him well in the cutthroat business world, as it does in more lucrative but dangerous ventures he now operates off the coast of Miami. Charlie tries to separate relationships from work. But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter. Will their fated encounter present Charlie with a way to seek the redemption he thought was impossible--and free his heart to love one woman as he never knew he could?...

Water from My Heart Reviews
Can't do it. Sympathetic drug runner mixed with romantic smaltz to a degree that is as believable as his getting a scholarship to Harvard would be in real life. During this era or any era. Fiction to the nth degree. Not for me.
Charles Martin favors leading male characters who are effortlessly cool and Charlie Finn in this book borders on being blase. He oozes crazy abilities from poker player extraordinaire to college whiz who sails through Harvard to finance wunderkind who makes six figures right out of grad school while attracting the most eligible bachelorette in Boston. You get the idea, he has the Midas touch but acts like he doesn't care. He decides to shift his talents to the underworld of drug trafficking and ...more
Charles Martin has quickly risen to my "read all" list of authors. He is a very talented at putting you inside the head of the people he has created and making it impossible to put this book down.
I was hooked from the first paragraph of Water from My Heart. It is a fascinating look inside the life of Charlie, a drug runner. Told with a First Person narrative that allows you to really understand the internal struggles and conflict Charlie faces due to the life he chose. Charlie has always been ve ...more
Book was really 3.5 stars for me but the epilogue caused me to bump it up to 4 stars. Charlie Finn didn't have a very easy childhood but got a scholarship to Harvard which opened up a whole new world to him. He met a whole different class of people from what he grew up with! He's a pretty good poker player and his ability to read the other player's face - no matter whether he's playing cards or negotiating a business deal - is a real plus. After Harvard, he jetsets all over the world putting tog ...more
When this book was recommended by a "Goodreads" friend, I looked over some of the reviews for the author's other works and it appeared that he specializes in "chick lit". No, my friend assured me, anything but! Well, I must admit the story moves along and despite the "macho" character (he really isn't, but his activities - drug runner, boat expert, boat builder, diver, business bully - are). Still despite the complexity of the plot, the story is fairly predictable and simplistic in many ways. Se ...more
Gostei muito deste livro.... Ao principio a história não me "puxava", mas a partir do momento, que o Charlie conhece a Paulina tudo muda....
Um livro que retrata que o dinheiro, não compra o que de mais importante tem a vida os valores humanos.....
This is the first book I've read written by Charles Martin. It won't be the only one I've read by Charles Martin for long. It was chosen for our book club and I'm so glad it was. Without giving any spoilers of the in-depth storyline, I will say it's one of the most powerful stories I've read. Riveting. Thought-provoking. Powerful. It caused me to stop and reflect on my own views and values. I almost felt forced not to just read, but seriously ponder questions about want, possessions, riches, my ...more
Esta foi a minha estreia com Charles Martin e confesso que tinha muita curiosidade em conhecer o seu trabalho, pois os seus livros são detentores de boas críticas. Fiquei bastante satisfeita com este livro, a história em si é muito bonita e comovente, mas devo dizer que achei o início um pouco chato e demasiado descritivo. Por esse motivo não lhe dou 5 estrelas, mas sim 4.
