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.
Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a story of faith, forgiveness and love. The story is tender and poignant and pulled me in right away. I couldn’t help but feel connected to Perla and Casewell. The author has written a beautifully emotional book that had me at turns smiling and crying. It is well-written and both the characters and the settings are perfectly described and well-developed. Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas restores hope and allows you to glimpse a miracle. I felt renewed reading this story, and I want to read more. This is a wonderful debut novel.
