Overview

When the Well Runs Dry describes my life, your life and every person that is associated with you and I. It is not your usual "chick" book so men BEWARE! This book encapsulates the lives of married couples, single men and women, divorced individuals, those that have been recently engaged, just dating and even the town player.

Our choices determine our outcome so it is imperative that we thoroughly choose our paths wisely. We should never get to a point in our lives where we feel as though everything is perfect and nothing can shake our foundation. As soon as we make up in our minds that we live in a perfect world CHAOS begins to lurk.

The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. Each of us must take a daily stand AGAINST him. When the Well Runs Dry is full of twists and turns that you will never see coming. Readers are not able to put the book down once they have opened it. You will laugh, cry, grow angry, blush, giggle, feel desperation, your heart will break and your soul will feel the pain. I can assure you that reading this book will be like looking into a mirror.

If you are looking for a woman that has captured what it takes to be “The Ultimate Success” Geena Howard is your girl! Geena’s life is very busy as she juggles being a wife, the mother of two growing girls, a career at a growing firm, and her many community obligations. In the midst of her hectic life, Geena also finds time to offer advice to her needy friends on their many relationship problems. While being Superwoman and trying to fix everyone else’s life, Geena forgets about her own marriage to Jared. She unknowingly begins to push her husband away and into the arms of another woman.

When this happens, Geena finds refuge in the last place that she would have ever expected. Her life is turned up side down when her best friend, introduces her to Dr. Zachary Stone at a card game one night. Geena knows she should not attend but instead of following her gut instinct she hangs around anyway. Geena soon finds herself in a position where she has to make a decision that could ultimately crush her world, right along with those that she loves dearly.

“I honestly just bought the book to support but I found myself turning page after page after page. I have never finished a book that fast EVER !! Maybe a Low-rider magazine or a Gun magazine but not a novel. I must say it is a Great book and I am extremely proud to say that I know the author. Keep up the great work and may God continue to bless you on all that you put your hands on in the Future #KeepDoingTheMost.”

“When I began reading this book I didn't stop until I was done...48 hrs. later! It really was a great read and I was so excited to support such a young, gifted, talented author. Katrina B Hill is such an inspiration already, but to see her talents unfold as an author just shows that you can't limit what God can do in your life. If you have not had an opportunity to meet this young woman, you can catch a glimpse of her talents through one of her many gifts to come in When the Well Runs Dry
Maria Moss
“As a busy working mom, I try to take time to read for leisure but seldom squeeze in the time other than when I am stuck in an airport somewhere on a layover. I picked up "When the Well Runs Dry" one afternoon and was immediately sucked into is cast of characters and their "oh-so-real" lives!! Geena was so familiar to me in so many ways, from seeing her and her struggles in my family, friends and my self! This book was awesome and I MADE time to read it, even if that meant stealing away.
Miesha Nathan
“I finished the book and I must say "When the Well Runs Dry" is the Truth. Never a dull moment. WOW!I loved all the characters with Geena being my leading Lady of course. Dr. Zach and Char are something else. My fav Chapter was Chap. 29, "The Meeting." The Truth and nothing but the Truth was spoken from Sharon,I agree how Michael did what he did and he is a 1 in a million. YOU TOUCHED EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE/RELATIONSHIPS. AWESOME Book Mrs. Hill. You have my vote and I am ready for part 2!
Sebastian Dixon
I have no hesitancy in writing a letter of recommendation for Mrs. Katrina Hill book "When the Well Run Dry". This book captures the true joys and pains of a relationship. If you think that your struggles and DESIRES are more than the average person...read this book. You will find yourself giving someone a high five and thiking about that time you did it like that. You can also relate to the pain endured by those captured in this story.. read and enjoy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR HUSBANDS AND WIVES!

I am an avid reader. This book is easy to read and it flows so well. You would not be able to tell that this is this author's first writing venture. You will find yourself identifying with each of these characters. You will be cheering one minute and crying the next. Once I started reading, I could not put it down! The only disappointing part of this book is that it had to end. Cannot wait for the sequel!! Mrs. Katrina B. Hill is definitely an author to look out for. This book is definitely a must read!

On paper, Geena Sullivan has the perfect life and is the epitome of a woman in control. She has two beautiful daughters, a loving and devoted husband and a best friend she can rely on. However, Geena’s life is anything but perfect as she loses control of everyone around her. Her oldest daughter is making grown up decisions regarding her high school boyfriend. Geena tries to manipulate the decisions but may end up losing her daughter. Will she release control before she loses her daughter for good? Geena’s perfect marriage begins to unravel when long lost friends return and threaten to reveal secrets from her past. Will Geena be able to control the situation long enough to save her marriage and foil any attempts to disclose her past? Katrina Butler Hill’s “When the Well Runs Dry” is a pretty good novel. However, it lacks a clear direction in the storyline. The novel starts out with the secrets from Geena’s past but quickly moves to another storyline with the daughter. The author then returns to the past secrets, albeit briefly, before going into more detail with the daughter. I didn’t know if this novel was supposed to be about Geena having to deal with her family life or Geena having to run from her past. If the author had maintained the family life story, I feel it would have been a good novel. However, the main character’s secret past life did nothing to add to the story or the plot. Additionally, there were a few distracting editing errors that kept this book from being more than a 3-star read. Reviewed by: Flashette

I personally bought this book from the author before it hit the stores and I finished the book the first night. It is a can't put down type of book that just keeps pulling you in to want to read the next page until you shake the book waiting for another page to come but you had just finished the last page. GREAT book!

I started reading this book one Saturday morning and couldn't put it down. I was reading it out loud to my husband and he actually listened. This book was amazing. The problems that Mrs. Hill touched bases on can really hit home with a lot of people. I used her book at my bookclub meeting and we all had a lot to discuss. Anyone looking for a great read, this is the book for you. I am looking forward to her future books.

Katrina Butler Hill has done a magnificent job depicting the trials and tribulations not only women endure, but that men endure as well. When the Well Runs Dry is an excellent book club novel that will foster candid dialogue in a group setting and heal any open wounds. I highly recommend that EVERYONE befriends "Geena", but be WARNED, you may discover that your lives are very similar, and in fact, YOUR WELL MAY BE RUNNING DRY!

I was amazingly surprised by this book from author, Katrina Butler Hill from the first page to the last. It was so engaging that I could not put the book down. The characters are so well developed that you find yourself absorbed in the flow of the book. I uniquely identified with each of the women in the book and found that I learned a little bit more of myself at each chapter. It's is brilliantly captivating and yet so relevant to our times. Long after you read this book, you will find that the characters remain with you. These characters do not jump out of the page, you fade into the book. I never read such fiction that felt so real. Kudos to you Katrina Butler Hill, this is a nice read and a great discussion for a girlfriend's retreat.

I don't typically read romance novels but I made the exception after a friend suggested I read it. The author brought the characters to life in this book. My emotions ran the gamut while reading When the Well Runs Dry. I laughed, I cried, I was angry, there was no end. I highly suggest you pick it up and make it a part of your collection. -CG
