From AudioFile:

Carry Me Like Water is the intertwining story of several struggling characters facing personal adversities that bring them together. The three narrators provide wonderful portrayals of several characters. Their voices richly paint the Spanish characters with colors and brush strokes as vibrant as the Southwest itself. Their depiction of the dying AIDS patient and his supportive friends captures their anguish and grief. Supernatural occurrences are presented in a believable, yet magical, manner that mesmerizes the listener. This is a powerful story enhanced by excellent narration. B.J.P.
