Miracle in a Dry Season was a different sort of novel. It's tone was little more somber. It's Christian fiction with a bit of a romantic story line, but it's definitely not just a romance novel.
The prevailing theme is forgiveness and refreshment. And Sarah Loudin Thomas does an excellent job weaving all of the elements of the story around this theme.
I was a little hesitant when I began because the feel of the novel is just different from the Christian romance stories I often read. But as I read, I really began to enjoy the read. I loved the characters. I enjoyed the story line. And although the tone of novel wasn't so sweet and simple as some of the novels I enjoy, the difference was refreshing.
This is one I can definitely recommend, and I look forward to finding more from the author who was new to me. I give this one 5 stars and a PG rating.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A graduate of Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC, Sarah once dreamed of being a marine scientist. But her love for words won out and she has spent much of her career in public relations and marketing. She currently oversees fundraising and communications for a Christian children’s home in Black Mountain, NC.
Sarah and her husband Jim live in the mountains of Western North Carolina with Thistle–the canine equivalent to a personal trainer pushing them to hike, run, and throw sticks. Sarah is active in her local church and enjoys cooking and–you guessed it–reading.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
