Short Book Description:

In a Drought, It’s the Darkest Cloud  That Brings Hope

It’s 1954 and Perla Long’s arrival in the sleepy town of Wise, West Virginia, was supposed to go unnoticed. She just wants a quiet, safe place for her and her daughter, Sadie, where the mistakes of her past can stay hidden. But then drought comes to Wise, and Perla is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle.

Casewell Phillips has resigned himself to life as a bachelor…until he meets Perla. She’s everything he’s sought in a woman, but he can’t get past the sense that she’s hiding something. As the drought worsens, Perla’s unique gift divides the town in two, bringing both gratitude and condemnation, and placing the pair in the middle of a storm of anger and forgiveness, fear and faith.

My Thoughts:

What to say?? Where to begin?? This book was filled with so much meaning for me that I don’t know where to start writing.

What I really liked about this book was that it wasn’t based on romance, but more about finding yourself in God through the hard times. Don’t get me wrong, I love my romance in books and movies, but these days’ people don’t really know what true romance really is.

Casewell and Perla were the ‘perfect’ main characters of the book. They had flaws and weakness just like every person out there. I hate a book where the main characters are always perfect in looks and character. It makes the whole thing seem so fake.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the series as they come out. I haven’t read the prequel to series yet but I do own it.
