MIRACLE IN A DRY SEASON
A novel by Sarah Loudin Thomas
A heartfelt story-taking place in mid-1950's in a small West Virginia town. A young girl and her daughter move in with her aunt and uncle who own the local general store. Rumors start in this small town and bring out a lot of bad feelings. The main character, a young woodworker tries his best to help the young girl even though he has his own problems with his sick dad and a local preacher. To add to the problems the area is hit hard by a drought. The story is well written and details of the characters and the 50's timeline make you feel you are there and know the people. The author added a Bible based background and used scripture verses in the story.
The story shows how people can make mistakes in life and can be forgiven, how a forgiving heart and a strong faith is needed in life. The story also shows how people can join together in times of trouble and help each other. This is a love story, a story of forgiveness and a story of cruelty. I found the book very easy reading and the storyline kept my interest through the book.
I received this book free from Bethany House for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.
