Wrapped In Rain

Fast paced, easy to get into and well written characters all add up to a great novel...  I hadn't heard of Charles Martin before I got this book, but now that I have...you can be sure I will be trying to find more of his stuff.  I loved the way he grabbed me from the first page and kept me up late as I kept saying "ok, just one more chapter". 

Cover Information:
"Life is a battle, but you can't fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart."
An internationally famous photographer, Tucker has traveled the world and seen both the serious and the strange. But when his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, he is forced to return home and face the agony of his own tragic past. Back in rural Alabama, Tucker comes to terms with the ghosts he left behind. Miss Ella Rain once loved Tuck and his brother like they were her very own. Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and to keep them out of sight was the only good thing their father ever did. And though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tuck can still hear her voice. And she keeps telling him, encouraging him, that by reaching out to this young boy he can redeem his father's tarnished legacy and pass on the good she brought into his life.

This is a story that makes you stop and examine your own heart as you follow along in someone else's shoes and is one I would recommend to anyone looking for a great fiction novel.

I review for BookSneeze
**Thomas Nelson provided me this book for review purposes & is allowing me to keep this title once finished. I get no other compensation...other than the chance to fill my heart and soul with an excellent read :) **

Still Reading...
