Fantastic. In just sixty pages, Brad Pauquette brings to life the plight of so many women in underdeveloped countries.

This is such a short read for such a long, arduous issue. Do take a look at this. Water, an essential part of life, is as central to a community as the well in the village of Muthuramapuram. For Sejal, water means safety and security, no longer a daily, dangerous walk. I have visited a slum near Delhi, and this book is remarkably realistic. It was like I could see the people there pouring from a new well, and it made me smile.
